UPDATE: Police, K9 Search for Break-In Suspect Near Stanford Drive

Police are investigating two home break-ins on Gay Street, Walker Road and Stanford Drive.

are investigating a series of three break-ins that took place Wednesday, one of which involved a search requiring the assistance of a K-9 unit.

That search was ended around 3 p.m. on Wednesday after police responded to Stanford Drive on reports of a home break-in.

A resident of that road came home and discovered an unknown male within the house, police said Wednesday. The resident then fled out the front of the home to call police, who said the perpetrator then exited the residence through a rear window and left on foot. 

While the K-9 search ended, police are still investigating the break in and say the male suspect may have left in a vehicle in a neighboring area. 

Shortly after the search ended, police responded to a Gay Street residence on another report of breaking and entering. Police were not able to provide details of that incident Wednesday afternoon. 

A similar break-in, meanwhile, reportedly took place Wednesday morning on Walker Road, where a resident reported coming home to find the front door open. 

Upon investigation, police determined that an individual accessed the home through an unlocked basement window at the residence between 9 a.m. and noontime Wednesday. A small quantity of jewelry was taken from the home, and a crow bar was recovered within the interior of the property.  

All three investigations are ongoing, though it it is currently undetermined if the break-ins are related. 

Westwood Patch will provide more information as it becomes available.

Seems like this should be the time for the town to use Reverse-911 for area residents with a description of subject and warning to be alert. Seems like we get calls from the town, particularly schools, for every other mundane topic virtually weekly. Here's a time when the phone SHOULD have been ringing. Let's hope Westwood's finest track down these low lifes.
