Milford PD warn residents after ‘rash’ of car break-ins

September 30, 2018

MILFORD — Lock your cars, take your valuables out from the cars and report any suspicious activity.

This is the message Milford police are sending after a rash of vehicle break-ins around the city. Police shared images of busted car windows on Friday, that appeared to happen overnight.

Police said residents should always take valuables out of their vehicles when they park it somewhere — even in their own driveway. And if the valuables can’t go with you, at least leave them in the trunk or out of sight.

Though it seems car door locks don’t deter someone determined to break into a car to steal valuables, if they aren’t left in plain sight, police said you’re less likely to be greeted by a busted window and missing items.

And, as always, call police if you see anything strange or suspicious.
