According to Interim Chief of Police Rick Rindels, a resident of South Lane said that his car was broken into after he left his car unlocked in his driveway overnight. The homeowner went out to his car on Friday morning and discovered that his glove compartment was open in his vehicle and some items were missing, including credit cards and paperwork.

Rindels added that it is unsure exactly what time the incident occurred but it happened between midnight and 6 a.m. on Friday morning.

With border town Granby, Conn. experiencing some car break-ins recently, Rindels is not ruling out the possibility that those break-ins are tied in with the incident on South Lane.

“We’re not really sure at this point,” said Rindels. “This was very close to the Granby border, so it’s a possibility.”

The Granville Police Department is reminding people to lock their vehicles at all times and not to leave valuables in plain sight. Additionally, law enforcement wants people to remain aware of what’s going on in their neighborhoods and call 911 if they see any suspicious activity.

The Granville Police Department has no leads at this time but will continue to investigate this incident.
