REXBURG, Idaho -

Four people are in custody and two more are being sought in vehicle burglaries that have occurred in Rexburg this summer, police said Tuesday.

Police said the burglaries began to increase in June. The windows of most of the vehicles were smashed, and purses and wallets were taken. The burglaries occurred in parking lots of apartment complexes.

The suspects, three minors and one adult, were taken into custody after being caught burglarizing vehicles Monday night, police said. They could be involved in vehicle burglaries in other areas. Officers are looking for two more minors in connection to the case.

Further information was not being released, as the investigation is continuing.
