Fairfield police warn residents about increase in car thefts
Fairfield police say there has been an increase in car thefts around the town.
They say some vehicles have even been stolen from people's driveways.
Authorities say that in most cases, cars were left unlocked.
"They are trying to be as quiet as possible, they're not going to smash windows," says Chief Gary MacNamara. "They're not going to try to set off car alarms. They're trying to be secret and stealth."
They are urging residents to make sure their cars are locked.
Westport police also say they have recently seen an increase in car thefts and break-ins.
