Another reminder to please lock your vehicles and take the keys. Over the past week, Newtown Police officers have responded to several reports of vehicles being entered and items taken during the overnight hours. We have also had several vehicles stolen. Thankfully all of the recently stolen vehicles have been recovered, but citizens are reminded to not leave their keys in their vehicle and lock them even in your driveway.
“The individuals are typically entering unlocked vehicles and taking whatever they find of value. If they locate the keys, they will take the car. It is rare that we find a locked vehicle entered, especially at night in a driveway so please remember to remove your valuables and lock your cars. This is a small step that you can take to help protect your property, and keep you from becoming a victim. Make it a habit.”
