Burglars in the Madison area have been reading the newspapers to help choose their targets.

Dane County sheriff's deputies are investigating four break-ins during the past month while the residents were at funerals in which notices were published beforehand.

Last Sunday, valuables were taken at a place where the residents had been to an anniversary party.

Dane County sheriff's spokeswoman Elise Schaefer says all incidents are still being investigated.

Deputies encourage people to lock their homes when they go and have neighbors look out for each other and report anything suspicious.
