ELKHART COUNTY, Ind. - Double check to make sure your car is locked.

There has been a string of robberies in Elkhart County.

On Monday night, three homes were burglarized on CR 15 in Osolo Township.

Our partners at The Elkhart Truth say the thieves were able to get inside by using garage door openers left in unlocked vehicles.

Cordless drills were stolen from two of the homes, along with the garage remotes.

Police suspect these burglaries are linked to an unsuccessful robbery that happened on Thursday.

The suspect in that incident is described as a 6-foot-tall white man, with short brown hair, weighing about 180 pounds.

He was reportedly wearing a light gray hooded sweatshirt and shorts.

Anyone with information on either incident should call the Elkhart County Sheriff's Department.
