Wellesley police probe string of home burglaries

1 min read

WELLESLEY — The Wellesley Police Department is actively investigating a series of three home burglaries that occurred within the past week, urging residents to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity.

The first incident took place on the evening of Dec. 8 on Appian Drive, where suspects gained entry by forcibly breaking in from the rear of an unoccupied house, subsequently removing various items.

A second burglary was reported on Tanglewood Road the afternoon of Dec. 11, discovered by the homeowner in the late afternoon.

Similar to the first, entry was made through a rear window, and items were taken from the premises.

The most recent break-in occurred on Lincoln Road on Dec. 12 in the early evening.

The residents were at home during the time of the burglary.

The suspects entered through a rear window and fled after being confronted by the homeowner.

In response to these events, the Wellesley Police Department is examining evidence and working with the community, with neighbors contributing leads from their home security cameras.

The department has observed a pattern where burglary suspects may first approach the front door or ring the doorbell before quickly moving to the rear of the house to gain entry.

Wellesley residents are encouraged to be on the lookout for unusual behavior and to take note of any unfamiliar vehicles, particularly those that are idling or occupied, in their neighborhood.
