NARRAGANSETT, R.I. - Police are looking for suspects in a number of break-ins and thefts from homes in the Scarborough Beach area.

Police say eight break-ins happened on Tuesday in the area of Angel Road and the Knowles Way extension, across from Scarborough beach. The area was evacuated in anticipation of Hurricane Sandy.

According to police, the first break-in happened around 4 a.m. Tuesday, with seven more happening throughout the day.

Narragansett police say thieves probably took advantage of the situation and looked for unlocked windows and doors from homes that were evacuated. Miscellaneous jewelry and video game consoles were amongst items taken, according to police.

Police say they think the break-ins may be connected, but they haven't found any suspects or made any arrests yet. Narragansett police urge residents to lock down their homes and secure their valuables to prevent more break-ins from happening.
