Police ask for vigilance


Police Chief Carlton Abbott is asking residents to remain vigilant in the wake of several break-ins in the Assonet Village area. Last weekend, there were six burglaries on Freemen’s Circle, The Lane, Simpson Lane, and Water and North Main streets, according to Abbott, who said on the town’s website that the thieves entered homes after “forcing open doors or entering through unlocked doors.” He said they fled with cash, cellphones, and other easily carried items. Police, in a posting on the town’s website, are asking residents to report any suspicious behavior by calling 911, activate alarm systems, make sure homes and vehicles are locked at all times, and leave on outside lights.
