A string of residential burglaries on the Balboa Peninsula over a two-month period appear to be related, Newport Beach police said.
Beginning in mid-August, there have been reports of break-ins at homes there, with burglars getting in through windows and open doors while the victims are home, according to a police crime alert.
Among the items taken were a purse, jewelry, cash, MacBooks, laptops, an iPad and a watch.
Five of the 11 total burglaries happened on Balboa Boulevard. Police said six of the incidents were the result of someone entering the home through an open door.
