As predicted by Tewksbury Police last week, a new wave of vehicle break-ins has struck the town, some of which may be connected to the theft of a car from a local repair shop.
On Sunday, July 12, just before 1 p.m., a woman called police and reported she had gone to Tewksbury Auto Repair, 820 Livingston St., to pick up her vehicle, only to find it gone. She said she had left it there to have work done and was told it was ready for pick up and that it would be left outside for her.
However, when she arrived to pick the car up it was nowhere to be found. The woman said she spoke to an employee, who said it had, in fact, been left out for her. An officer interviewed both the vehicle owner and the employee and filed a report. The vehicle was entered into the stolen car data base.
Later Sunday night, at 9:41 p.m., police received a call from a second woman, who told them she had gone to Tewksbury Auto Repair to pick up her mother's vehicle after it had been worked on and found it had been broken into. Again, it had been left in the parking lot for pickup after the repair work was done.
A detective was sent to the scene and a report was filed.
In the meantime, Sunday at 9:22 a.m., police received a call from a resident at 245 East St. reporting that two of their vehicles had been gone through at some point overnight.
Later, at 3:06 p.m., a resident of 11 Nolan Court called police to report that two of THEIR vehicles had been gone through at some point overnight. Officers added this report to the East Street report, believing they could be connected.
Nolan Court is just 2/10 of a mile from Tewksbury Auto Repair and 245 East St. is just a 1/2 mile from Nolan Court.
All four of these crimes remain under investigation.
