They are asking anyone who sees anything suspicious near catch basins to report it to police for any resident with video surveillance that can assist police in these investigations to contact them.
If a storm drain grate is missing in your neighborhood, police ask that you immediately contact the Hamden Police Department to report the theft at 203-230-4000.
