Gardner police are investigating a rash of burglaries that have taken place since January in the 200 block of West Main Street.

Ilena Spalding, public information officer for the Gardner Police Department, said one of the thefts took place between February 15 and March 16.

Stolen from a storage shed were items of clothing valued at $100.
The second theft took place between Feb. 7 and Feb. 8, but was not reported to police until March 16.

In that case, thieves stole about $100 in copper wire from a story shed.
Spalding said both sheds were locked.

Another theft resulted in the loss of $276 in pole saws that were stored under a porch.

In January, someone broke into the Gardner Historical Museum and stole keys and a lock box valued at $56.

Anyone with information in the thefts is asked to contact Gardner police at (913) 856-7312.
