Items stolen from unlocked cars in Southborough this weekend

Personal items were stolen from unlocked cars in three separate incidents this weekend, the Southborough Police Department reported on their Facebook page. The incidents occurred on Overlook Drive and Upland Road. Items stolen included GPS units, a wallet, and an iPhone charger.

In a fourth incident overnight on Sunday, an attempted break-in was reported on a vehicle on Learned Street. Police say in that incident the suspect’s vehicle was seen leaving the area and was described as a “blue or grey (possibly Dodge) pick-up truck with a rack on the back and a very loud exhaust.”

Southborough Police are urging residents to lock your car doors and to report any suspicious activity in your neighborhood to police at 508-485-2121.

Not sure about the rack in the back, but there’s an old dusky (denim) blue pickup that rolls through downtown about twice a day with a leaking exhaust manifold. Old beater that you can’t miss. Seemed to be a local from the area – pretty sure he comes down from Winchester Street onto East Main / Main Street. Never caught the plates, but I used to see it almost every day when I was walking to work from home, and vice versa. Not sure if it’s the same vehicle or not, though – don’t want to implicate the wrong person.

Susan,

Can we find out if these cars that were broken into were parked on the street or in driveways?

Thank you
