Rash of motor vehicle burglaries under investigation
Camden — During the past two weeks, there have been a total of six reported motor vehicle robberies in Camden as well as one stolen vehicle.
The robberies were first reported March 8, with cash, change and jewelery reported missing from two vehicles on Trim Street and one each on Washington Street and Harden Avenue. Those robberies likely took place in the early morning hours and are connected to the theft of a black 2008 GMC Envoy from Megunticook Street, Detective Curt Andrick said. There are leads being pursued in relation to those four robberies and the vehicle theft, he said.
Then, in the early morning hours of March 19, two additional burglaries were reported to police, both from vehicles on Highland Park Drive.
"A resident reported suspicious activity in the parking lot," Andrick said, adding cash and other items were taken. The most recent burglaries are not believed to be connected to those reported earlier in the month.
He encouraged residents to make sure vehicles are locked and valuables secured, even when parking in a driveway, and to report suspicious activity to police.
