West Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- A West Fargo man is in the Cass County Jail, after police say he went on a burglary spree.

Police say 34-year-old Nicholas Pulkrabek broke in to numerous homes all over the area, stealing thousands of dollars worth of items. Some of those burglaries took place in Fargo, Moorhead, Wahpeton and parts of Becker County.

They say he targeted "snow birds" or people who had left home for the winter, relying on clues like unshoveled driveways or letters in mailboxes. Police say the items ranged from musical instruments to jewelry and electronics.

Lt. Joel Vettel with the Fargo Police says, "the total of the stolen items will certainly be in the six figures, so a very significant amount of merchandise, significant value, and probably the most important thing is it has a very significant number of victims."

Police discovered the items in a Fargo apartment, while conducting a welfare check of a woman inside.
