LORAIN — Police made two arrests Friday of men they suspect are responsible for a series of home burglaries around Lorain and Amherst.

Around 6:30 p.m. Friday, police charged Shaun Kay, 29, and Christopher Harrold, 27, of Lorain, with aggravated burglary following reports of about 10 burglaries and attempted burglaries around Lorain in December.

Police started receiving tips and reports of home burglaries two weeks ago in the area south of Tower Boulevard and west of Oberlin Avenue in Lorain. Suspects stole guns, computers, jewelry and money.

When police started to receive reports of suspicious people offering to rake leaves or shovel snow in that same area officers began identifying the suspects. After working with Amherst Police who were investigating similar burglaries, police identified Kay and Harrold as the two responsible for the home invasions and burglaries. Kay and Harrold confessed to burglaries and were brought to Lorain City Jail where they are being held until their next hearing.
