NORTHFIELD — Following reports of dozens of vehicles being entered overnight in the past two weeks, a car was stolen from a Main Street residence overnight on Tuesday and later recovered in Brattleboro, Vt.

The Northfield Police Department announced the vehicle theft in a Facebook post on Wednesday, after the vehicle had been recovered.

It was also reported that other vehicles on Main, East and Maple streets were entered Tuesday night, and loose change was taken.

Additionally, several vehicles were entered in the Main Street area during the night on Feb. 4. Several more vehicles were reportedly entered in the area of Birnam Road overnight on Feb. 7.

The Northfield Police Department has added extra patrols during the night, and is actively investigating these incidents, the post states. The department asks residents to report anything suspicious by calling 413-625-8200.

During Monday’s Selectboard meeting, members mentioned the recent string of entered vehicles, and urged residents to lock their vehicles and homes. Selectboard member Heath Cummings said if residents see suspicious activity, or have information related to the thefts, they should contact police as soon as possible. Too often, he said, even waiting just a few minutes can allow suspects to get away.

“Timely reporting is the biggest thing,” Cummings said simply.
