Rise in house break-ins


Norwood police reported 30 house break-ins from October 2012 to January 2013, and 20 more in the two months since then. Typically, the thieves take anything that can be easily sold, such as jewelry and electronics, often to feed a drug habit, said Lieutenant Peter F. Kelly. “Basically, it all comes back to drugs,” he said. Police are asking residents to call if they see anything suspicious, to lock all doors and windows when no one is home, and to use interior and exterior lighting to increase visibility.
