Police Chief Urges Vigilance After Two Burglaries

The Easton Police Department is investigating several leads and has collected physical evidence that will be sent to the Connecticut State Police Forensics Lab for examination following forced entries to two homes on Dec. 5 on Tuckahoe Road.

“I urge all our residents to be vigilant in securing valuables in your homes,” Easton Police Chief Richard Doyle said in response to the break-ins. “If you have a security alarm system, make sure you arm it and please call the police immediately if you see any suspicious activity.”

Easton Police responded to the two burglaries on Tuckahoe Road on Saturday.  Both residences were entered by force.  One was entered by breaking a window, the other was entered by prying open a door.  Cash and jewelry were taken from both residences, and one had a firearm stolen.

As officers conducted their investigation at the first site, the police department dispatch center received a 911 call at approximately 8:40 p.m. from another resident on the same road, reporting their home had also been burglarized and ransacked.

Surveillance cameras at one residence captured two males wearing dark hoodies and masks entering the home at about 5:30 p.m.

The Easton Police Department is located at 700 Morehouse Road, Easton, CT 06612, 203-268-4111, EastonCT.gov.
