OGDEN, Utah (AP) -- Ogden's police chief says above-average rainfall in June resulted in fewer burglaries within the city.

The number of home burglaries this year in Ogden was the lowest for the month of June over the past three years.

According to the National Weather Service, 0.22 inches of rain hit Ogden in June 2007, when police investigated 101 burglary reports. In 2008, there was 2.15 inches of rainfall in June and the number of burglaries fell to 73.
