Thursday afternoon, the Minneapolis Police Department announced the latest in a string of arrests in Southwest Minneapolis burglaries.

As Patch reported Thursday morning, officers had for trying to cut the screen on a window of a house on the 3600 block of 1st Avenue South.

Police also announced the arrest of another man of the 3400 block of Colfax Avenue South noticed a strange man lurking around her house and peering into windows. Police say the resident noticed her window had been opened while she was on the phone with 911 dispatchers, but the suspect walked away from the house when he realized it was occupied. He was arrested "without incident," but has since been released as no charges were filed within 48 hours of the arrest.

Despite multiple inquiries from Patch, though, police won't say whether these men or  announced last week are connected to the of garage burglaries that hit over a dozen houses across Southwest Minneapolis in one night.
