Stolen merchadise currently held by Montgomery County Police.

The burglaries took place last year, and police have been able to return about half of what was stolen to its owners. But more than 200 pieces of jewelry, as well as laptops, a few TVs and video game systems, DVDs and stacks of international currency remain.

Police would also like homeowners to take some precautions to make sure they don't find themselves in this situation. One involves social networking. Detective Bob Finkelstein says it's not wise to post on sites like Facebook when you're leaving your house.

"It can only help if you don't put that information out there. It makes it easier for the burglar to know if no one's home," he says.

Three men were arrested for the string of burglaries, a crime police say has become more frequent since the downturn in the economy.
