The Orange Police Department is investigating break-ins at three local homes overnight as well as two cars having been entered and one stolen. All three residences are in the Argyle Road, Currier Drive, Pine Tree Drive neighborhoods. The neighborhood is off of Orange Center Road.
Police first responded to a residence on Argyle Rd at 4:45 a.m., where a resident was awakened by shattering glass. Unknown subjects had thrown a large rock through a glass rear door and entered the kitchen, stealing an electronic device, and immediately left.
Detectives found several other windows and doors had been tampered with in an attempt to gain access. The Department then received a call from a resident of Currier Drive who related that his rear glass door was broken, however no access was gained.
While at that investigation, a neighbor walked up and advised that his garage had been entered, Officers are still determining what was taken. A resident reported that two unlocked vehicles in their driveway had been gone through, although nothing was taken. Police then received a report of a vehicle stolen from a driveway on David Court. The 2005 Nissan Altima was taken sometime during the overnight hours. The owner had left the keys in the center console of the unlocked vehicle.
A canvass of the neighborhood residents revealed that an “Squarish” SUV was seen driving slowly in the neighborhood being followed by a small sedan with its lights out just before the first report was received.
All residents are reminded lock their cars and remove valuables during the overnight hours. Leaving outside lights on during overnight hours can also be helpful, Residents should not hesitate to report suspicious activity to police at 203-891-2130
