Burbank seems to be experiencing a surge in home burglaries currently, and a curious one that took place Tuesday marked the third burglary in the city in a week, say police.

In a daytime heist, a female suspect used the doggie door of a home in the 1900 block of North Fairview Street to gain access to the residence sometime between 7:30 a.m. and noon, according to the Burbank Leader.

Once inside, the suspected thief moved the victim's dog into the master bedroom, and helped herself to jewelry and collectibles and figurines from the perennially popular TV sitcom "I Love Lucy."

A witness told police she spotted the suspicious woman hopping into the passenger side of a dark sedan that sped away from the scene of the crime.

The prior two burglaries in the past week in Burbank were also done in the daytime, and those two were on North Brighton Street, which is six streets east of North Fairview.
