The Wellesley Police Department is investigating multiple home burglaries that took place in the Edgewater Drive and River Glen Road neighborhood over the past weekend.
These burglary incidents appear to have occurred during the night from Saturday, November 20, to Sunday, November 21, 2021. Homes were entered via unlocked doors. Items were removed and stolen from the homes while the residents were present. Residents were unaware that anyone was in the house until they discovered the missing items the following morning.
In one case, burglars broke into a vacant house slated for demolition. Forced entry was made into that dwelling.
Wellesley Police Department officers and detectives are actively investigating the case. Anyone with information should contact Officer Mike Mankavech at 781-235-1212 or via email at email@example.com.
Keep Homes and Possessions Safe During Thanksgiving
With the upcoming Thanksgiving Holiday, WPD is reminding all residents to take common sense precautions to keep homes, vehicles, and families safe. Please lock all of the doors to your home, especially if you are travelling. Set home alarms and call the Wellesley Police Department to report any suspicious activity.
Locking car doors, both your own cars and cars of visiting guests, will help prevent theft. WPD continues to receive reports of cars being broken into (most recently on Carver Road) and stolen from surrounding towns. Many of these car burglaries and car thefts occur when cars are unlocked with the keys left inside.
