Quincy Police are warning residents to lock their cars, following several unlocked vehicles were broken into throughout this month.

According to Quincy police, on May 15, several unlocked cars parked in North Quincy had items stolen out of them, including cars on Carruth Street, Willow Street, and Newbury Avenue.

Items stolen included GPS units, a camera, and portable DVD player.

A car on Furnace Brook Parkway also had a window smashed in and had items stolen, though police don’t believe the incident is related, as it doesn’t fit the characteristics of the other breaks.

A week later, another rash of robberies took place in North Quincy on the evening of May 20 and the morning of May 21.

Police said cars on Wadsworth Street, Hollis Avenue, Webster Street, Commander Shea Boulevard, Billings Street, Botolph Street, and Newbury Avenue were all broken into.

Items stolen included a work bag, iPods, darts, a purse, GPS systems, and cassette tapes.

With the exception of the break-in on Furnace Brook, all the cars were unlocked at the time.

“Police are urging people: lock your car doors and take our your valuables. Become less of a target,” police Captain John Dougan said.
