Police are investigating numerous reports of cars broken into over the weekend.
Two Algonquin Road residents called police Saturday morning to report vehicle break-ins. In the first case, a rear passenger window was smashed and a backpack, valued at $60, was taken. At a neighboring home, an unlocked car was entered overnight and $50 worth of CDs were reported taken and personal papers were scattered across the driveway.
Also on Saturday, a patron at Boston Market, 1982 Black Rock Turnpike, reported their vehicle was entered about 3:15 p.m. and a CD player worth $50 was taken.
On Monday morning, a Brookfield Avenue resident told police that two unlocked cars were entered overnight and wallet taken from one and a $150 GPS unit taken from the other.
A First Street resident also reported Monday that her daughter's car was entered overnight. Taken from the unlocked car was a purse, and a $700 pair of prescription RayBan sunglasses. According to the report, the value of the purse and contents totaled $1,000. The purse and some of the missing items were later found in some bushes.
A Lynnbrook Road resident told police Monday that a $200 GPS unit was taken from a locked car, but the car was not damaged. The rubber molding on the top of the passenger window, however, was pushed in.
Police also received reports Monday that the doors on several cars on Essex Street were found open, but nothing was reported missing.
