Police in American Samoa are warning the general public, especially business operators, that burglaries and break-ins are on the rise.

A police investigator is quoted by the Samoa News as saying that authorities have been lucky in catching some of the thieves but the majority have been getting away with it.

The Police are reported to have received information about several gangs, but investigators are trying to pin point when and where they operate.
