I just received word that a home on Southville Road was broken into last night around 8:30 pm. The burglar or burglars reportedly entered through a basement window.
Last week Southborough Police warned residents to be on the lookout for suspicious activity after a rash of thefts. Sergeant Sean James said at the time that five homes had been broken into in the past several months. All break-ins occured in the evening hours.
No word on whether this most recent break-in is related to the others, but the advice from police still stands: be sure to secure your homes and call police immediately if notice anything or anyone suspicious in your neighborhood. The Southborough Police can be reached at 508-485-2147, or by calling 9-1-1.
