**A MESSAGE FROM OUR RESIDENT TROOPERS**
With the warm weather finally upon us, we have been seeing a trend across the state of vehicle break ins and stolen vehicles. Many of the towns that have been experiencing a problem with these types of incidents are towns in which limited access highways (I.e. Route 9, I95, I91, I84,etc) run through them. Reason being, thief’s have easy access to residential areas via the limited access highways.
IMPORTANT THINGS TO REMEMBER: LOCK CAR DOORS, REMOVE YOUR KEYS & SECURE YOUR VALUABLES.
The trend seems to be that these criminals are not necessarily “breaking into” vehicles; but are rather entering unlocked vehicles and helping themselves to people’s belongings. The Haddam resident Troopers Office & Troopers from Troop F are aware of the uptick in these types of incidents across the state and are increasing checks of residential areas; especially during the overnight hours. We are reminding Haddam residents to be proactive so they do not fall victim to incidents such as the ones we have been seeing in other communities
