More items were stolen from unlocked cars in Southborough this week. Southborough Police are reminding residents to lock their cars and not leave valuables in them.

SPD Chief Kenneth Paulhus reached out. He pointed me to a Facebook post from yesterday detailing:

There were also a series of motor vehicle break-ins in the area of William Colleary Lane and White Bagley Road, that were reported during today’s Day Shift. Three vehicles were entered, and several items were taken from these unsecured vehicles. Two vehicles were broken into on William Colleary Lane, and one was reportedly entered on White Bagley Road.

The chief described that like with other burglaries recently and in past years, thieves will be dropped off in a neighborhood while a driver circles around to pick them back up. It allows them to quickly hit a bunch of cars in an area.

In what appears to be a separate incident a home was also reported as burgled over the weekend:

Southborough Police are investigating a Burglary (by force) at a residence on Pine Hill Road (in the area of the #70’s) that occurred at some point over the weekend. The homeowners were not at home during the time of the Burglary. There were several items that were reportedly taken from the residence.

All of the incidents are being investigated by the Detective Unit. They ask anyone with information to contact Det. Steve Neivert or Lt. Ryan Newell at the Southborough Police Department (508) 485-2121.

Chief Paulhus is also encouraging that some residents may want to invest in security cameras. He noted that when thieves see them, they tend to move on. Plus, images captured help the investigation.
