Cromwell Police Investigate Rash of Break-Ins



    Cromwell Police are on the lookout for the people who broke into more than a dozen cars on Sunday night, stole items and vandalized the vehicles.

    The break-ins happened at the Fox Meadows Condominiums and the Cromwell Hills complex in Cromwell, according to investigators.

    "It's just a shame, it's like a violation," Mary Hixson, a Fox Meadows resident, said.

    "There was a policeman looking over here and there were several windshields laid on the grass, so it looks like they used a screwdriver to pop the windshields to get into the cars," Hixson said.

    In each case, the thieves got away with valuables, such as GPS devices and cash, according to police.

    "It bothers me. It's pretty scary," Darcie Lentini. A resident of Cromwell Hills, said.

    Police said several vehicles were broken into along Kim Ileen and Briar courts at the complex.

    Lentini said she'll now be on the lookout.

    "I'm going to definitely be aware. Before I go outside, I’ll look around and see if I see anything suspicious. If I do, I'll call the police," she said.
