BEACON FALLS — The Resident State Trooper’s office is once again reminding residents to keep car doors locked overnight after a series of motor vehicle break-ins continues to impact the area.
Resident State Trooper Andrew Borelli said the break-ins have been consistent over the last month. Area police believe the perpetrators to be juveniles.
The targeted vehicles are left unlocked overnight and do not incur physical damage.
In most cases, spare change has been taken from victimized vehicles, but there were some incidents in which more valuable items were taken. Borelli said that recently, cars themselves have been stolen because the vehicle was left unlocked with the keys inside.
Similar incidents occurred last month in Prospect and Naugatuck. Beacon Falls Resident State Trooper’s Office has partnered with Prospect Resident State Trooper’s Office and Naugatuck Police Department to investigate and combat further thefts.
