The Brattleboro Police Department has recently seen an uptick in larceny from motor vehicles most notably vehicles that are left unlocked at their residence.
BPD patrol officers continue to take reports and conduct initial investigations into the larcenies.
BPD reminds citizens to take steps to prevent burglaries and to report suspicious circumstances. Citizens are urged to call the police if they see something suspicious. The Brattleboro Police Department wants to remind the public that they are a full time agency and have officers available 24 hours a day to respond.
Citizens can take additional steps to prevent burglaries by locking doors and windows in their homes and vehicles. Garages, back doors, and basement bulkheads are often overlooked by homeowners but are common burglary access points. If you leave town, make arrangements to have your mail stopped and your newspapers picked up. A house that appears unoccupied is an attractive target for a burglar as well as unlocked vehicles.
