At least five campers were burglarized at the evacuated and partly flooded River Place Campground and Bait Shop in Gary-New Duluth between Thursday and Sunday afternoon, police said.

"This is the only area that we have taken a hit like that," Duluth Police Department Public Information Officer Jim Hansen said Monday. "Obviously, people caught wind that that area was emptied out for a while and took advantage of it."

In addition to the five burglary reports, the department also received a

damage-to-property report from the campground. After receiving the complaints, police increased patrols in the area and haven't received any new reports of problems, Hansen said.
