ATTENTION! CAR THEFTS AND BURGLARIES

All of the surrounding towns have been hit with vehicle thefts and car burglaries with recent ones as early as this morning in Newton for the past several weeks. All vehicles that were stolen had keys left in them and all vehicles that had been burglarized were left unlocked. PLEASE report any and all suspicious activity and lock your vehicles and remove the keys. We are anticipating being hit due to being one of the last areas that have not been hit yet!
