SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- In the last six weeks, Greene County sheriff's deputies arrested 24 burglary suspects caught in the act.  The arrests were the work of a temporary task force put together in mid-January by Sheriff Jim Arnott in response to a rash of daytime home burglaries in areas of Greene County outside Springfield. The task force was comprised of detectives, patrol officers, and employees from the civil and corrections division.  The sheriff's department used warnings given through the media as well as electronic signs to alert neighborhoods to suspicious behavior.  Greene County says it received many calls, including several of those reporting burglaries in progress.
