Barrington Police reminding residents to lock up their cars

Warning follows string of car break-ins in Jamestown

Posted

Barrington Police Chief Michael Correia is asking residents to lock up their cars, following a rash of car break-ins that occurred in Jamestown recently.

Chief Correia shared a Facebook post on Tuesday, Aug. 2 alerting Barrington residents that another town was victimized with car break-ins last Monday night and early Tuesday morning. 

“Approximately 50 cars were ransacked and nearly all were unlocked,” Chief Correia wrote. “We are asking all residents to take their valuables (laptops, sunglasses, car keys, etc.) out of their cars during the night time hours. Please remember to always LOCK your cars.

“Let’s make Barrington safer together.”

A news report had stated that there were dozens of car break-ins in Barrington earlier this week also, but Chief Correia said that was not the case. However, he is still urging residents to lock their vehicles.
