Two homes burglarized Monday afternoon, car stolen

Two Hastings homes were burglarized Monday afternoon. The burglaries occurred between 1:30 and 4:30 p.m. One of the homes was located in the 1600 block of Tierney Drive and the other was in the 1400 block of Truax Circle.

A window was broken at one of the homes to gain access. At the other, an unsecured door was found.

A vehicle was stolen from the home on Tierney Drive. The car was found abandoned near the Veterans Home in Hastings.

Jewelry appears to be what the thieves had the most interest in, and the homes were ransacked.

"There's no doubt they spent a considerable amount of time gathering the things they were interested in," Chief of Police Paul Schnell said.

The cases, believed to be related, are under investigation.
