Lanesborough Police Warn Of Home Breaks
LANESBOROUGH, Mass. — Police are asking residents to report anything suspicious as they try to halt a rash of home break ins.
Police posted on Facebook Tuesday afternoon asking residents to call them at 443-4107 if they see anything suspicious.
"We expect most reports to be unfounded or explainable, however, if you observe someone or a vehicle that seems unusual or out of place, or a stranger is looking for directions or a lost pet, do not hesitate to call as soon as possible with whatever information you are able to gather. You are not being a bother or overreacting!" Police wrote.
"Helpful information could include the subjects physical description and clothing, vehicle description and plate number, and direction of travel. With smart phones so common, photos and video of the incident could prove invaluable."
Police say most of the break in occurred during the work day hours. The homes have most often been left unlocked.
"A very common statement from victims and neighbors is 'We never lock our doors.' So, please, make sure your homes and your vehicles are secured," Police wrote.
