A Public Advisory from the Orange Police Department

Last week, we advised the Orange community about thefts from unlocked vehicles.

Today, we are asking residents to check to make sure their vehicles have not been subject to this type of theft, or even an attempt of this type.

Often the perpetrator(s) will check all vehicles in a certain area until they locate the ones that are unlocked, and will rummage through them to find any valuables.

If you have found that your car was gone through, or if it appears that someone even tried to access your car, please let us know.

We are interested in ANY activity of this nature, and we’ve had reports from the Avon Drive and Cummings Drive areas in the last two days.

If you have information regarding thefts from cars, please contact Detective Sean Murphy at 203-891-2138 x214 or via e-mail at smurphy@orange-ct.gov
