Salina Police are investigating a couple of vehicle burglaries that could be related.
According to Lieutenant Jim Feldman, a Ford pickup on Plantation Drive and a GMC truck on Carolina Drive were opened and items from inside were taken from both vehicles during the same time frame.

Loss is listed at $2,405.
