Dodge City police say the western Kansas city is seeing a big increase in burglaries.

Police responded to 52 burglaries at homes, businesses and vehicles in November. That's a 60 percent increase over November of last year.

Police Chief Craig Mellecker says the crimes are happening across the city. He says it's not clear what is prompting the increase but he added that such crimes increase around the holidays.

The Dodge City Daily Globe reports that Mellecker also says drugs often play a part in property crimes.
