Have you heard about the car burglaries? They’re happening in Westport.
I was one of the people robbed.
Yesterday — midday!
I was with my dog at Winslow Park. My car was parked in the Westport Country Playhouse lot. The window was smashed. My bag was stolen.
Two other cars were broken into also. Their bags were stolen as well. One was in the North Compo Road lot.
People need to know not to leave anything of value in your car. It’s a good idea in general. But what a shame that we have to be so vigilant in our wonderful town.
I used to always leave my bag in my car. I hid it under the driver’s seat. Yesterday they must have seen a little bit of it.
As I talk with people about this, we agree that we feel relaxed about what we leave in our cars. We think our town is safe.
Please tell “06880” readers to be careful!
But I have a hunch this will not be the last we hear of this.
