The Southborough Police Department is warning residents to be vigilant after a string of break-ins in recent weeks. In the last seven days alone, four homes and one business have been broken into.
Police say they’ve stepped up patrols, but they’re asking for the community’s help in reporting suspicious activity. They’re also warning residents to secure their homes and vehicles. Here’s more from the department’s Facebook page.
