The Portage County Sheriff’s Office is currently investigating several daytime residential burglaries that occurred last week in the Towns of Amherst and Lanark. In more than one instance, entry was forced into a residence during the midday hours when the residents were not home. Personal documents, tools, jewelry, and other valuables were taken in the crimes. Witness have reported seeing an older white pick-up truck with an extended cab, possibly a Dodge Dakota, driving through the areas of the burglaries. One suspect has been identified and is in custody. Anyone who has any information about these burglaries is asked to contact Detective Kevin Flick at 715-346-1400.
