An arrest has been made in the recent burglaries in North Winton Village. The suspect was arrested in possession of stolen goods soon after robbing a local home.
Over the past week there have been multiple car break-ins on Mayfield St., Marsden Rd. and other neighborhood streets. The thefts have occurred in residents’ driveways and on the street in front of their homes. Some incidents have involved broken windows, and among the items stolen were iPods, cell phones, chargers, and laptops.
Please remember to lock your car doors, hide or remove valuable items, and report anything that looks suspicious to the police.
Chief Sheppard held a press conference October 11 to announce the third quarter Rochester Police Department statistics. He mentioned the problem with teenage break-ins in the Browncroft and North Winton Village neighborhoods, and is working with the Rochester City School District and Rochester Transit to address the issue.
