I had prescheduled a few posts per day for the next few days, allowing me to spend time with the family. Unfortunately, news doesn’t want to wait on my schedule to break. So. . .

This is just a quick roundup some of the news that broke earlier today:

Vehicle related thefts alert from Southborough Police Department

The Southborough Police warn about a vehicle theft, plus string of vehicle break-ins. This was posted on their Facebook page this morning.

[We] have just experienced a string of motor vehicle break-ins on Valley Road and Meadow Lane. We are also investigating a stolen motor vehicle that was taken from a Boston Road residence. These incidents call for a quick reminder to all of our residents- Please make sure to LOCK and SECURE your homes, vehicles, and other personal property. Also, please remove all loose valuables (that could be easily carried away) from your vehicles. An expensive electronic device left in plain view inside your vehicle, will increase the chances of your vehicle being broken into. We have increased police patrols throughout the town, but we are also asking our residents to take notice of any suspicious behavior. Please be vigilant in reporting any and all suspicious behavior as soon as possible, and please share this information with other residents. Thank you.
