From the First Selectman's office:
East Haddam residents need to be more vigilant than normal concerning burglaries in town. Unlocked cars and garages are being targeted for GPS, computers, wallets, change, generators, leaf blowers and ATV's. Recently, the crimes have escalated to include home breaking and entering to steal jewelry and electronics.
A key arrest was made in November in conjunction with local burglaries, but other suspects are still actively being pursued.
Please sign up for our emergency alert service and include police updates in your selection.
We will be holding a public meeting to discuss preventative measures and schedule neighborhood crime watch presentations.
Please lock all doors and alert your neighbors and police if you go on vacation.
Mark B. Walter
Town of East Haddam
