Goffstown selectman says more police needed
Police logged 20 thefts from vehicles in one overnight period last week, bringing the total number of thefts from vehicles to about 75 since the beginning of the year, according to police.
The most recent thefts were concentrated in the area of Holly, Roy, Laurel and Edmond streets in Pinardville during the overnight hours of Aug. 13, according to a statement issued by the Goffstown Police Department.
"We could comfortably use one to two more officers, just to be safer," he said.
"All of the vehicles had been entered through unlocked doors," he said, noting that no signs of broken glass or other forced entry were noted.
"They're not breaking car windows, they're pulling on door handles and gaining access. If it's locked, they move on to the next one," he said. "What we're trying to do is reduce the opportunity."
Residents are also asked that if they locate any items that may have been taken from their vehicles to not to touch those items but report the finding of property to the police so a proper investigation may be completed.
