MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Minot police have taken six people into custody in recent days as they deal with a rash of business, home and storage unit burglaries.

So far this year there have been at least 15 burglaries in the city. They continue a trend, with burglaries in 2015 increasing 60 percent over the previous year.

The problem might be tied to drugs, with some of the suspects also arrested on drug charges.

Police officers have increased patrols aimed at detecting suspicious activity near businesses. The police department also is encouraging businesses to record serial numbers of valuables.
