WESTPORT, Conn. -- Westport Police urged residents to be more vigilant about locking car doors after nine vehicle thefts in the past two months. In each instance, the cars were unlocked and keys were left in the car.
"We have also experienced numerous vehicle break-ins during the month of December,'' a police statement said. "In all cases of vehicles being entered, which resulted in thefts, the doors were unlocked. The recent thefts have occurred overnight."
The Westport Police Department reminds residents to take valuables out of the car for the night, such as cash, purses, wallets and electronics. Outside lights on and motion lights should also be on. Notify the police if it appears your vehicle was entered or you observe anything suspicious in your neighborhood.
