West Hartford police investigate 30 overnight car and garage break-ins

WEST HARTFORD — The amount of overnight burglaries in one West Hartford neighborhood hit double digits according to West Hartford Police.

In the overnight hours between Wednesday and Thursday, police say there were over 30 burglaries into cars and garages. THe incidents happened in the areas of:

  • Farmington Avenue
  • Garfield Avenue
  • Sunset Terrace
  • Tunxis Road
  • Mountain Road
  • Ridgewood Road
  • Sedgwick Road

  • Rosedale Road

There was also one house burglary on Long Lane Road where suspects entered through an unlocked rear door. The suspects were able to make off with a 55″ TV and other electronics. The residents were home and sleeping during the incident.

As a reminder, police recommend people lock up their homes and vehicles.
