police carOn March 1, we shared a press release from the Orange Police Department regarding residential burglaries in the northwest area of town.

“The northwest portion of town (Hilltop Road, Garden Road, Mulberry Lane, etc). These incidents have occurred during the day time while the homeowners were away.”

Last night, another burglary was reported in the same part of town, commonly referred to as the Turkey Hill area, according to Asst. Chief Anthony Cuozzo.

A resident returned home to find the house had been burglarized and reported several items — jewelry and small electronics — were missing.

The Orange Police are working with neighboring police departments including Milford where several similar burglaries have been reported in the North End of the city — Wheelers Farm Road/ Herbert Street.

Cuozzo said the latest incidents have taken place where the unknown suspects have easy access to the Wilbur Cross Parkway.

“Our detectives need some solid leads. The big message that I want to get out to the residents it to pay attention to what’s going on in your neighborhood, talk to your neighbors,” he said. “If you see something out of place, call the police department immediately and we will get patrol cars into the area.”

Cuozzo said civilian observations and notifications will be the key to solving the case. “We need your help. If you know your neighbor is at work and you see an unfamiliar car in their driveway, or any unfamiliar people wandering around, give us a call at 203-891-2130.”

BEST-POLICE-Patch-EVER-275x300At this week’s Police Commission meeting, Chief Gagne recapped October’s incident reports, including the Oct. 24 burglary complaint on Highland Terrace during which an elderly woman woke to find a stocky man wearing a hood inside her bedroom.

Investigating officers found that the person had pride open a door and a jewelry box had been taken.

A K-9 track led to the road, so perhaps the suspect got into a car at that point, according to the report.

• Officers responded to a burglary complaint on Longmeadow Road on October 3 around 3:45 p.m.

According to the report tools were taken from an unlocked garage.

• Police were dispatched to the Racebrook Wine and Liquor Store at 3:49 a.m. on Oct. 18 for a burglar alarm.

Someone had forced entry into the building and took cash and cigarettes.

Investigation revealed that Milford had a similar burglary soon afterward on the same night. The two departments are working together on the investigation.
