PORTLAND -- Businesses in the Sellwood neighborhood have been hit by burglars at least 13 times in recent weeks, including twice in the last week.

The burglaries have all been at night.

In the last theft, Musical PDX owner Kyle Fouts said several guitars were taken from his shop, including a $4,000 1978 Les Paul.

Sometimes, the value of what's been stolen has been less than the cost of repairs. For example, thieves broke into Stars Antique Mall and stole cheap costume jewelry.
