Rash Of Thefts From Cars; It's Not Us, But It Could Be

East Lyme police have seen an increase in thefts from cars. Bad guys probably don't recognize town borders.

Rash Of Thefts From Cars; It's Not Us, But It Could Be

From Connecticut State Police Lt. Paul Vance:

Over the past three weeks, officers from the East Lyme Resident Troopers' Office have responded to investigate numerous thefts from unlocked vehicles throughout the town. 

The thefts appear to be perpetrated during the nighttime hours with electronics and money being the targeted by the suspects. 

The East Lyme Resident Trooper is reminding residents to lock their vehicles and secure their valuables from sight.  In addition residents are asked to report any suspicious activity or persons in the community immediately to police via 911.
