Montgomery, Ala. (WSFA) -- Montgomery police are investigating a rash of burglaries. Recent police reports show at least 14 in the last two days.

Thieves took everything from electronics to jewelry. There are steps you can take to protect your home.

"You definitely want to keep lighting around your house, keep it well lit.   A lot of people have privacy fences.  Those are good for keeping the privacy in your backyard, but it also gives the criminal a perfect opportunity to go back there and not be seen by a neighbor, " said Montgomery police Sgt. J. L. Walker.

Police also say to keep serial numbers and pictures of expensive items and leave it with an insurance agent or in a safe deposit box.
