Nov. 25 was Black Friday not only for stores, but also for thieves who broke into at least 10 cars on Sumner Hill.
Police incident reports show only one car break-in that day on Greenough Avenue. But a resident and victim told the Gazette that many more cars were hit. Most of the cars were unlocked, the resident said.
The Boston Police Department recommends that car owners: never leave valuable items in plain view in their cars; always lock their doors and roll up their windows; and install an alarm. Anyone who sees suspicious activity should call 911, even if it does not seem like an emergency.
