Barrington police are investigating a series of break-ins — at local homes and residents’ cars.
On Monday, Sept. 30, a Bernard Avenue resident told police someone broke into her home while she was home and stole her purse and an iPad. She said the incident took place between 10 p.m. Saturday night, Sept. 28, and 5 a.m. the next morning.
On Thursday, Oct. 3, a Boyce Avenue resident called police after someone smashed a window pane on a side door in an apparent attempt to break in. The resident said his large German shepherd likely scared away the burglar before he gained entrance.
And on Monday morning, Oct. 7, a Promenade Street resident called 911 after realizing that someone had stolen items from his car. The responding officer found some of the missing items in the street near the home and also saw a neighbor’s car that appeared to have been burglarized. That person said her GPS was stolen during the incident.
