GREENWICH, Conn. — A burglar entered two unlocked homes in Old Greenwich last week and tried to get into a third before being scared off by an alarm, according to Greenwich Time.
Police are warning residents to be attentive to their home security in the wake of the break-ins, according to Greenwich Time. The two successful burglaries took place at Old Greenwich homes where someone was able to gain entry through unsecured entryways in the early morning hours, stealing purses, cash and personal belongings, Greenwich Time reported.
