De Pere Police say since yesterday's burglaries at three homes on Charles Street -- they've received several tip calls regarding the case.
In all three robberies, the families were inside the homes, sleeping.
Police say the tip calls have led to new evidence, though they're not saying what that evidence is.
Unfortunately burglaries are all too common --
and we wanted to know if it happens to you, what's the best way to make sure you get your things back?
Try to think of everything you have in your home a thief might want: your tv, your DVD player, all your music and movies -- do you know exactly what you have?
You could write it all down, make a list of it all, but who does that?
"I'm probably just as good an example," said John Boland, Boland Insurance Agency. "I showed you the inventory thing, I've never filled one out."
Insurance company owner John Boland, says the best way to protect your things, is to use technology.
"The easiest way to do it is stand in this corner, take a picture," said Boland. "And stand in every corner of every room and snap a picture."
By using a digital camera to record every room, from every angle, you've got a visual record that you, or police or insurance agents can look at, and know exactly what you have and what may be missing.
"Big difference between a table that you buy at a local store, and a very expensive collectors table and the picture tells you the difference," said Boland.
There's one key thing to remember: don't store your pictures on the computer or even on the camera.
These could both end up stolen or destroyed.
Take the memory card or video tape out, keep it with family or in a deposit box where you know its going to be safe.
You may not ever get your exact items back, but you will have a way to prove you owned them, and maybe get the money to replace them.
