New Canaan Police Warn of Towning, Urge Residents to Lock Vehicles, Remove Valuables!

The New Canaan Police Department posted a message to the community on Facebook urging residents to LOCK vehicles and remove valuables! Please read the important safety reminder below.

2020 has been a year full of crazy twists and turns, who could have predicted all the challenges we have faced!

One thing we can guarantee is that gangs are out at night "Towning.” This term refers to groups of typical juveniles, selecting a town to travel to, where they steal cars with keys/key fobs left inside them or steal items from unlocked vehicles. These are criminal acts!

We continue to ask all residents (some still are not heeding the warnings) to lock your cars and remove valuables.

Do your part to help stop this completely preventable crime!
