(KBRF) - The Otter Tail County Sheriff’s Office is investigating 22 burglaries believed to have taken place Tuesday night.

Most of the burglaries happened on Eagle Lake south of Battle Lake. Seasonal cabins were forcibly entered on Oriole Lane, Sparrow Lane and South Eagle Lake Road. Two fish houses on the lake were also entered.

Sheriff Brian Schlueter says vandalism to the properties appeared to be the main goal of the perpetrators, but at least two televisions were stolen. Homeowners have been contacted so they can put together an inventory of damage and missing items.

Another fish house break-in on Chautauqua Lake south of Fergus Falls is believed to be connected. A fire extinguisher was discharged inside that fish house.

Cabin break-ins on South Turtle Lake Monday night are also believed connected. There are no suspects at this time, but the investigation continues.
