Longmeadow residents concerned about spike in recent break-ins


Longmeadow police are reminding residents to lock their cars and not leave anything valuable in sight after a series of break-ins.

According to the Longmeadow Police Department, there have been over 33 car break-ins over the past two weeks.

Police said break-ins occurred on over a dozen streets across town.

All of the cars that were broken into showed no forced-entry, as they were all unlocked or had their windows down. 

Robert Shaw, a Longmeadow resident, told 22News times have changed, It really is sad, you know, you can’t leave your car unlocked, your doors unlocked. When I was young we didn’t lock our cars, we didn’t lock our door, Now-a-days you can’t do that.”

If you live in Longmeadow and see anyone breaking into cars in your neighborhood, you can call Longmeadow police at 413-567-3311
