SOMERSET, Mass. (WPRI) — Somerset police are warning residents to be vigilant following a series of vehicle break-ins in the town.
In a post on the department’s official Facebook page, police said several cars were broken into in the past week and items such as cell phones and debit cards were stolen.
The thieves aren’t just checking to see if the doors are unlocked, either, according to police. They said there have been instances where the thieves have smashed a vehicle’s windows to gain access.
The break-ins have happened on Calvin Avenue, Elm Street, Moffitt Avenue and Old North Street, as well as in the Chili’s parking lot on GAR Highway, police said.
One vehicle was also stolen from Samson Avenue.
Police are urging residents remove all the valuables from their vehicles and make sure to keep them locked at all times.
