Deputies in McLennan County announced Friday they made 7 arrests after an investigation into about 45 vehicle burglaries.

Deputies are looking for several more people in connection to the burglaries. They say it is two separate burglary groups.

Two of the arrests were made at 4 a.m. on Friday.

Three of the arrests were made in a home in Chalk Bluff where several thieves were, and they were repeat offenders.

Most of the arrests were made in the Chalk Bluff area, according to McNamara.

Areas in Mart were also targeted and those suspects have not been arrested yet.

"We're after them," said Sheriff McNamara. The investigation has been ongoing for several weeks.

Sheriff McNamara says most of the burglaries were of vehicles that were unlocked.

He reminded people to lock their cars.
