Residents in North Tustin were urged to be alert after a rash of break-ins in their normally crime-free neighborhood.

Concerned residents packed the fire station in Cowan Heights on Tuesday night to discuss the issue with officials.

In the last month, there have been 15 home burglaries, according to the Orange County Sheriff's Department. Most of the burglaries happened between 10 a.m. and 9 p.m. while the residents were away.

The sheriff's department has responded with extra patrols and undercover officers. It's not yet known if the same burglars are behind all the break-ins.

One home surveillance camera showed one of the burglary suspects, but it was not in enough detail to provide a description.
