Twelve cars were broken into at Prentice Place when a person or persons smashed windows to gain access. The most common thing taken from the cars were electronics like IPods, GPS systems and phones.
Two days later five cars at Kensington Woods Condominiums were broken into in the same way. Again, electronics were the main thing taken.
Berlin Assistant Chief John Klett said due to the way the cars were broken into, the incidents were likely related. He added that when cars were the target in Berlin, usually unlocked cars were the ones the thieves would look for.
He said residents should not tempt thieves by leaving IPods, GPS, wallets or money in plain sight when parking the car for the evening.
There was another vehicle broken into Wednesday early on Main St in East Berlin.
Police ask residents to be on the lookout and report suspicious activity to police at (860) 828-7080.
