Police have a message for residents: lock up your vehicles at night.
Detectives from the Newtown Police Department are investigating a recent report of two stolen motor vehicles from the garage of a Butternut Ridge residence, which were unlocked with the keys inside the vehicle.
According to police, the thefts occurred during the early hours of Wednesday, June 6. The following day, at approximately 1:35 a.m., a Taunton Lane resident reported that they found people going through their unlocked cars, which were parked in the driveway.
The resident said that they confronted the suspects, who then ran out of the driveway and got into a large SUV with a “very loud exhaust.” No further description was provided on the vehicle or suspects. Police are currently investigating both incidents.
