Police hosting forums to discuss burglaries

The police department will host community forums at 11 a.m. Feb. 9 at the senior center, 6 West St., and at 6 p.m. Feb 12 at the library, 26 North Road, to discuss recent criminal activity.

Police will talk with homeowners about recent burglaries that have occurred in town, including an incident two weeks ago on Whittier Road. During that case, a resident returned home in broad daylight to discover a trespasser, donning a ski mask, in his second-floor bedroom. The suspect still is at-large.

Police Chief Ed Mello said these forums are intended for residents and police to work together to create a safer community. During the Feb. 9 session, lunch will be served. The cost is $3. Call 423-2658 to reserve a meal.
