Police are investigating a string of burglaries in the Mission Hill area over the long holiday weekend. Six homes were apparently broken into, and, in several cases, the residents reported missing items ranging from loose change to laptops, cellphones, and tablets, Boston police said. In most cases, the victims were away for the holiday and discovered the break-ins when they returned, police said in a community alert posted on the department’s blog, bpdnews.com. Two of the burglaries were reported in adjacent buildings on Parker Hill Avenue, and three were reported in two separate buildings on the 800 block of Huntington Avenue, police said.
