A series of car break-ins around town was reported to police last Friday.
A Benedict Avenue resident reported the window of a locked car was broken, and a computer equipment taken from the vehicle.
On Southwood Road, an unlocked car was entered, and the glove box rummaged through, but nothing taken.
Two cars at two different Northwood Road homes were entered. At one home, the resident reported she was out for a walk at 5:15 a.m. when she saw a man, dressed in black, his face covered by the hood of his sweatshirt, walking along the street. When she returned home, her unlocked car had been entered and items scattered around, but nothing taken.
A neighbor, however, was not as lucky. An EZ Pass, worth $100, was stolen from an unlocked car, police were told.
They told police their dog was barking around 3:15 a.m.
A $1,200 navigational system was stolen from the dashboard of an unlocked car on Warwick Avenue, and a car entered on Eastwood Road, though nothing was missing, police were told.
A $300 iPod and a $70 backpack were reported stolen from a locked car on Park Avenue; the car's window was smashed to gain entry.
