Killingworth Car Break-ins

By Cathy Iino.

(April 2, 2020) — I’m sorry to report that once again, cars parked in driveways have been broken into in the last few days. The most recent break-ins were on a road off Green Hill Road. One car window was broken; other cars were unlocked.
  • Do not leave your keys in your car.
  • Do not to leave anything valuable in your car.
  • It’s best not to leave boxes and bags that look like they might be valuable in your car.
  • Call Resident Trooper Rich Mulhall at 860-663-1132 as soon as you discover a break-in.
At present, the State Police will contact you by phone, not in person, about the incident.
Editor’s Note: This is the advice that the resident troopers have given us in the past, which is always good advice:
  • Always keep your vehicles locked no matter where you live and try to keep them in well-lit areas.
  • Do not leave firearms in your vehicle. 
  • Set car alarms. 
  • Do not hide keys or key fobs in your vehicle. 
  • Consider installing or activating your vehicle GPS tracking units, i.e., On-Star. 
  • Do not leave your car running unattended even if it is for a few minutes.
