COVENTRY, R.I. (WPRI) — Police in Coventry are urging residents to lock their cars after several break-ins were reported over the weekend.
Police posted to Facebook Tuesday morning regarding the break-ins, which occurred near the western end of town.
All of the vehicles that were broken into were unlocked, police said. Affected residents also reported missing or stolen items following the incidents.
With the rash of break-ins, police called attention to the town’s surveillance camera registry.
The registry, which is completely voluntary, can help officers solve crimes. If a crime occurs in a certain area, officers can search the registry to see if any nearby home or business surveillance systems caught the suspect in the act.
