SWAMPSCOTT, Mass. — Authorities in one North Shore town are reminding the public to lock their cars after a recent rash of break-ins.
Swampscott Police say they’ve received numerous reports of cars that were broken into and that all the vehicles involved were unlocked.
“Thieves typically won’t waste time entering a locked vehicle unless there are valuables visible,” police wrote in a social media post. “Simply locking your vehicle and hiding anything of value can protect you from becoming a victim.”
Anyone who believes they are a victim of a recent car break-in or vandalism is asked to call police.
