AUBURN, Mass. – Thieves stole wallets, cash, flashlights and GPS devices from 24 vehicles in the South Street and Pakachoag Street neighborhoods over the weekend, Auburn Police report.

The cars were unlocked and not damaged during the incidents, Det. Sgt. Jeffrey Lourie said.

“There is no forced entry in these incidents,” Lourie said. “The cars appeared to have been unlocked, so we want to remind residents to remove valuables from their vehicles and lock their vehicles.”

There are no leads about who committed the crimes, Lourie said.

“We’re hoping that through aggressive patrols in the neighborhoods we’ll be able to apprehend whoever is doing this,” Lourie said. “We’re going to do our best to apprehend them.”

He said anyone who noticed suspicious activity should call the police at 508-832-7777.
