The Broome County Sheriff's Office investigated one murder, 9 robberies and 186 burglaries.

Those numbers are up from 2005, especially burglary cases.

The number of rape and arson investigations dropped slightly.

"We've had a busy year in 2006. We've had two floods, snowstorms and a lot of different events going on. Ticket writing went up, penal arrests have gone up and the case load has been heavy for our officers."

The Sheriff's office will put the report online.
