Full press release from the Wayland Police Department:
On Wednesday February 15, 2012, Wayland Police responded to two residential burglaries. At 12:47 P.M. police responded to a burglar alarm at a residence on Fox Meadow Lane. Upon arrival, officers found a garage window open and the door between the garage and the house forced open. Officers checked the house and the surrounding area but could not locate the intruder. It is believed the burglar had been scared off by the burglar alarm. Nothing was reported missing.
At 5:30 P.M. officers responded to a Glezen Lane home after the resident discovered a break-in when she returned home. In this case, the perpetrator gained entrance through a basement sliding glass door. Jewelry and cash were missing from the home. Both cases are under investigation by detectives and they ask anyone that may have any information to contact them at 508-358-4721.
Additional daytime burglaries have occurred in the towns of Lincoln and Sudbury recently. Police ask homeowners to secure their homes when they leave, set their burglar alarms if they have one and to immediately report any suspicious activity in their neighborhoods. If an unknown person knocks on your door and asks for directions or provides other excuses for them being there, it is possible that they are checking to see if someone is home before breaking in. This type of activity should immediately be reported to the police so we can attempt to identify the individuals. Vehicle descriptions and license plate numbers aid the police in investigating and identifying suspicious individuals. As jewelry is often the target of residential burglars, it is suggested that homeowners hide their jewelry or store it in a safe place. If a resident comes home and discovers that their home has been broken into, they should exit the home and contact the police so a thorough check of the house can be made by officers.
