“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.
