Police Warn Mansfield Residents of Burglaries

Three burglaries were reported in the last two days, according to reports provided by Connecticut State Police Troop C.

Mansfield Resident State Troopers are warning residents to remain vigilant on the heels of recent burglaries in town.

Police are currently investigating residential burglaries that occurred on Oct. 16 and Oct. 17, on Highland and Conantville Roads, respectively.

"Numerous items," were taken from both homes, according to a police report.

On Oct 16., a burglary was also reported to have taken place in the parking lot of the East Brook Mall.

In that case, a vehicle’s window had been smashed and a Garmin GPS and EZ-Pass were taken from within, according to a police report.

“We’re well aware of the situation and we’re working now on strategies to combat these recent daytime burglaries,” Sgt. Richard Cournoyer of the Mansfield Resident State Trooper's Office said.

Cournoyer reminded residents Thursday to take sensible precautions - such as locking doors and activating alarm systems - to keep their homes, vehicles and valuables safe.

Anyone who witnesses suspicious activity is urged to call 911.

"Anything that seems odd or even remotely out of place, call the police," Cournoyer said. "That information may be just what we need," he said.

I live in East Brook Heights, too. This is getting so scary. One of my friends had many valuables stolen. What has this world come to?

Maybe now the resident State Trooper will be out patrolling instead of escorting animal control around at night.

Scary...I will put this info up on my facebook page. Can you guess on an age or height, glasses/no glasses, black/white/hispanic?? Gosh, this makes me so nervous, especially after the home invasion a few weeks ago. :(

This has been going on for years. I live on browns road and I can name at least 6 break ins over the past 5 years and many of my Friends that live in other parts of Mansfield have been broken into also. VERY FEW are ever caught, I don't know whether its just not high on the resident troopers list to find thiefs or if the are just incompetent!

Two years ago someone drove in my driveway in the evening and took my lawnmower right out of my little building. I think it was a big truck because I saw unusual tracks on the grass next to my driveway. Police came and took a report but I never heard anymore about it. Everything has to be double and triple locked around here because there are so many thieves around. (Stafford Road).
