BELMONT — Police are investigating four home burglaries that have occurred since the new year.
One of the burglaries was reported on January 3 on Brown Hill Road and another was reported on January 13 on Hunter Court. Two were reported on January 15 on Circle Drive and Meadow Lane.
Police said they have reason to believe that at the Circle Drive home, the perpetrator(s) came from the Route 140 area near the entrance to Pine Gardens Trailer Park.
Sgt. Steve Akerstrom said in one case a television was stolen and in other cases cash and/or jewelry was stolen. He said all of the burglaries were at occupied homes whose owners were not home when entry was made.
Although the most recent three burglaries were reported to police between 8 and 9:15 p.m., he said police do not know what time the burglaries occurred except for the Circle Drive one that happened between 6 and 7:30 p.m.
Police are asking that anyone with any information call the Belmont Police Department at 267-8351. Police are also asking residents to report any unusual motor vehicle and/or pedestrian traffic immediately to them.
