Residential/Vehicle Break-Ins on the Rise in Acton

In the past four weeks there have been seven residential break-ins and seven home break-ins.

Over the past 4 weeks, the Acton Police Department has seen a significant increase in both residential and vehicle break-ins.

The vehicle break-ins are occurring overnight and electronics are the perpetrators primary target. It is important that you lock your vehicle and any electronics are secured out of sight. The residential break-ins are occurring during the daylight hours.

The suspects are gaining access into the homes by damaging first floor doors and windows. The following types of items are being stolen: computers, cameras, jewelry, credit cards, and televisions. In some cases, neighbors have observed suspicious persons around the house and neglected to contact the Police Department. It is important that you report anything suspicious to the Acton Police by calling 911.

Note: The following information was from the Acton police department.

It would be helpful to know where in Acton these break-ins have occurred.

Also, what is your definition of "significant?". I would love to see a real police log for Acton, not the highlights of a incident with funny/attention grabbing headlines. To the new editor: PLEASE print the full police log of everything that happens in our town.

Where have all the street lights gone? Town keeps getting darker by the week!

One break-in was on Half Moon Hill, another in Indian Village.

There were several car break-ins near the commuter rail station. What are the police doing about this?! When you call them, they say to lock your cars and doors. Done that. If there is a significant rise, there is likely a pattern!
