PALM BAY, Fla. -

Police say Palm Bay homes near I-95 are being targeted by burglars who show up in the middle of the day, break sliding-glass doors to get inside and make off with jewelry, cash and guns.

Investigators are looking into more than a dozen instances that occurred during the past few weeks.

Not much is known about the suspects, but police say they target homes specifically near I-95, fill pillowcases with loot from homes and drive late-model cars with tinted windows.
