Dedham Police Remind Residents to Secure Vehicles, Belongings Following Motor Vehicle Break-ins
DEDHAM – Chief Michael d’Entremont and the Dedham Police Department are reminding residents to always lock their vehicles and secure their belongings after several cars were broken into over the weekend.
According to Dedham Police, thieves entered four cars in the parking lot of the Boch Ice Center, 1105 East St., on Sunday, March 6. One of the vehicles was unlocked and the windows were broken on the other three. A makeup bag, three purses, and two hockey bags were stolen.
In order to prevent thefts from motor vehicles, Dedham Police are advising residents to always lock their vehicles, and to never leave their belongings, especially those of value, in the car or in plain view. If the items need to be in the vehicle, secure them in the trunk, locked and out of sight.
“We strongly urge all residents to always lock their vehicles, whether you are parked in a commercial lot or at home,” Chief d’Entremont said. “We have seen numerous vehicle break-ins recently and the only way to deter thieves is to make sure the doors are locked and anything valuable is out of sight.”
If the public sees anything out of the ordinary or finds that any of their belongings have been stolen from their vehicle, they are encouraged to call the Dedham Police Department at 781-751-9338.
