BILLERICA (CBS) – Police in Billerica are warning residents to be careful after a series of break-ins that occurred while the homeowners were asleep inside.

Police used a reverse 911 call to alert the sections of town hit by the rash of recent burglaries.

One part of Billerica has seen at least five break-ins since August.

WBZ-TV’s Jim Smith reports.

The warning from police states that, “In all of these cases the suspect has entered the home after 2 a.m. and has stolen cash from purses and wallets left in the kitchen.”

And its not just housebreaks, several cars have been broken into as well. The people living here are alarmed.

Many say they used to leave cars and even doors unlocked sometimes, but those days are over.

Police are telling people to lock up, and keep outside areas well-lit.
