Residents Urged to Protect Homes and Cars

Brookline Police are advising Aspinwall Hill residents to continue to be vigilant in locking their house doors and windows.

In February 2012, there were five residential break-ins — on Winthrop Road, University Road, and Washington Street. Police reported 15-20 similar residential burglaries in the last month throughout north Brookline.

Police said the suspect(s) are targeting multi-unit brick buildings but have also hit several multi-family buildings. The point of entry has been primarily unlocked basement windows and rear/side doors. The break-ins are occurring in the late afternoon/evening and most breaks have been on Thursdays and Fridays. The suspects are targeting jewelry, laptops, small electronics, and cash.

Also, a report was received that between 8:30 pm and 10 pm on February 22 a car parked on Rawson Road was broken into and a GPS unit taken. Police advise car owners not to leave portable GPS units visible in parked cars.
