A safety announcement from the Westbrook Police Department today after a rash of car and truck burglaries.
From the Westbrook PD Facebook Page:
A couple of people tried to ring in the new year by burglarizing some vehicles in the Forest Street and Deer Hill neighborhoods. Thanks to an alert resident and a quick Police response the suspects were quickly nabbed. A whole bunch of charges are now pending.
In all the car burglaries that occurred the cars were unlocked. We've said it before many times, and will continue to say - LOCK YOUR CAR! Don't let yourself fall victim to a car burglary - lock your car doors!
