FAIRFIELD, Conn. — Police are warning residents to play it safe after several Fairfield residents reported their unlocked cars rummaged through and items -- in one case, $1,500 in tools -- stolen last weekend.

A Longfellow Avenue man told police that someone made off with $1,500 in hand tools taken from the bed of his truck, which he parked outside his home around 9 p.m. Friday.

In another incident, a Valley Lane resident said three of his unlocked cars had been rummaged through between 1:15 and 9 a.m. Sunday, though nothing was taken, police said.

Sometime between 3 p.m. Sunday and 6:30 a.m. Monday, someone entered two cars on Burroughs Road. About $5 in change was stolen, police said.

Finally, a Woodcrest Road man said someone rummaged through his car between 6 p.m. Sunday and 7 a.m. Monday. A missing duffel bag containing personal items was found on a neighbor’s property.

“Although we are seeing a slight decline in break-ins to vehicles, when all of our neighbors make an effort to lock their cars, it makes our neighborhoods less desirable for crimes to occur,” said Lt. Robert Kalamaras.
