MONROE — Police are investigating studies of some automotive break-ins on the town, including one through which the motorcar in query was truly stolen — then recovered that very same day.
In line with Monroe police, at 7:28 a.m. Tuesday, officers acquired a report that a 2017 black Nissan Rogue had been stolen from an Osborn Lane residence, and that the residence’s mailbox had been hit. The caller reported that the incidents doubtless happened a while overnight.
Police stated, around three:15 p.m., the car was recovered within the parking zone of the Dunkin Donuts at 447 Monroe Turnpike.
The identical day, at 8:43 a.m., police stated they acquired a report that one other car had been broken into at a Spring Hill Street residence and a checkbook had been stolen. Security digital camera footage confirmed that the incident happened round 4 a.m.
Monroe Police Lt. Stephen Corrone stated the incidents are considered associated, and that automotive break-ins of this nature are an “ongoing situation” across the state.
