Hampden County

SOUTHWICK, Mass. (WWLP) – The Southwick Police Department is advising residents to lock their car doors after multiple break-ins early Wednesday morning.

According to the Southwick Police Department, two vehicles were stolen in the area of Patriots Way and Lexington Circle.

Detective Sergeant Thomas Krutka said that numerous car break-ins have been reported with valuables being stolen in two separate neighborhoods.

So far police recovered one of the vehicles in Hartford but not all victims have been as lucky.

Sgt. Krutka is urging residents, “Don’t leave pocketbooks, wallets, keys, key fobs in your car. It’s just a recipe for disaster.”

22News spoke with one homeowner who fell victim and said they have home surveillance for this very reason.

“I hope that the cameras do catch and we do get notifications on the phone you know there’s plenty of apps out there,” Alex Sanchez said.

Longmeadow police have also taken to Facebook to warn residents about thefts after three cars were stolen this week.
