Officials at Sowams School called Barrington Police on Monday, May 2 at about 3:30 p.m. to report the larceny of a bicycle from a rack outside the school. School officials shared surveillance video showing a man wearing a hoodie take a child’s bike from the school during school hours. 

On Wednesday, May 3, a Nayatt Road resident called police to report stolen bags of dirt. The resident said she had placed eight bags of Scott’s topsoil on the edge of her property and the bags later disappeared. Police advised the resident that it might not be a good idea to place the bags so close to the roadside, as some people may think that they have been put out for the trash. The eight bags were valued at a total of $23.92.

On Sunday, May 8, a New Meadow Road resident called police after someone stole a birdhouse he had placed at the edge of his property — the resident said there was a “for sale” sign right next to the birdhouse. The birdhouse is valued at $150. The resident said someone driving a silver van stole the birdhouse.
