Are the police going to be doing anything about these break-ins??

It looks like an organized time line. Taking advantage of the weather. Looters.

Yeah, I just heard the police are starting a new program this week.. Beginning each night at 9 o'clock they will have an officer stop by each home in Milford and lock any car doors they find unlocked. This should completely eradicate this spree of motor vehicle "break in's" as not a single car had a window smashed or door pried open. Good job to the police department in rescuing the suicidal woman!

Tony's right: most of these cars were unlocked. That being said, people forget. I've had things taken from my car because I forgot to lock up. More break-ins were reported into Wednesday afternoon, but then, it seemed, the thief took a break. No reports Thursday. Lock up everyone! http://patch.com/A-zlvX
