Sunday, Dec. 29

3:47 a.m. – Police were called to Birchwood Way on the report of someone breaking into a car there. Police found a Nissan SUV parked in a driveway on Woodland with the driver’s door open, the glove box open, and some of what looked like contents strewn on the front seats. Police did not find any other cars in the area that appeared to have been broken into.

4:17 a.m. – Police stopped an EG man who was walking on Main Street near King Street carrying a backpack. The man allowed police to search the pack, which appeared to contain only his possessions. He explained he’d left his parents’ house in town and was walking to the airport. He declined a ride and was allowed to continue his journey.

8:48 a.m. – A Hanaford Drive resident told police someone broke into her car overnight. The newspaper delivery man had stopped at her house to tell her he’d found some of her things in the middle of Mayflower Drive. She told police she’d left her purse in the unlocked car. The resident said she was missing about $150 in cash, an iPhone 5, and her purse.

Would it not reduce car break-ins resulting in loss of money and other things if people would simply lock their car doors? let's see-that takes all of about one second!

No kiddin! Never mind that most cars have a button on the key fob that locks all the car doors at once, in one second!
