Alert — and upset — “06880” reader Fran Bresnan writes:
My car was broken into yesterday in the Winslow Park parking lot on Compo Road.
I arrived at 1 p.m. Twenty minutes later, when I returned to my car, the passengers window had been smashed. My purse and briefcase were taken from the car.
Apparently, others there at this time said, this happens frequently.
I’d like to warn everyone going there to leave valuables at home. This was not a crime of opportunity. Apparently the same thing happened last week, and others have said “frequently.” Someone knows the drill and is watching the parking lot.
Perhaps some video surveillance or an increased police presence might be a deterrent?
