Police in Southington said there has been an uptick in car break-ins over the past few weeks.
The break-ins, according to police, have been happening in all areas of town.
Residents are being reminded to lock their car doors and keep valuables out of sight.
Also, during the colder months people tend to warm their cars up, but police said this is the perfect opportunity for a thief to get in the car and steal it.
Any suspicious activity or car break-ins should be reported to Southington police.
