GREENFIELD — More than two dozen motor vehicle were broken into overnight near Meridian Street left the police looking for the perpetrators, but also reminding the public to lock their cars.

“We say this all the time. We can’t emphasize it enough,” Greenfield Police Lt. William Gordon said. “Typically theft is a crime of an opportunity. If your doors are locked you’re much less liable to become a victim of the crime.”

The first report of possible break-ins came in around 2:17 a.m. A person called police to tell them around Meridian and Deerfield streets two people walking around, wearing hoodies were going into people’s vehicles. 

Later on Tuesday morning, a person reported his Ford Edge was broken into on Wisdom Way, and two rings and $20 were missing. Another person called the police to report their vehicle on Meridian Street had been broken into and a utility tool was taken. 

Vehicles were broken into around Meridian Street, Pretty Plain Road and Water Street, according to police. 

“No matter where you live, lock your doors,” Gordon said.
