Pittsfield police receiving more car break-in reports


PITTSFIELD -- Pittsfield police received seven more reports of cars being broken into on Friday morning, following a spate of car break-ins earlier in the week.

The reports included one of two break-ins on Green Street, where somebody went into an unlocked vehicle and took gift cards, Pittsfield Police Sgt. Michael Maddalena said.

Other break-ins were reported on Santa Maria Place, Brown Street, King Street, Dartmouth Street and Maple Street.

The calls all came into police between 6:54 a.m. and 9:19 a.m.

Maddalena said most of the reports appeared to be of break-ins into unlocked cars, though more specific details weren’t immediately available. The cases remain under investigation.

The string of car break-ins throughout the city follows numerous break-ins into unlocked cars reported between Tuesday and Thurday on Tyler Street, Springside Avenue, Spring Street, Lenox Avenue and Ensign Avenue.

A week earlier, police received reports of locked and unlocked cars being broken into in a close radius on Backman Avenue, Euclid Avenue and Merriam Street in the same neighborhood.

Anybody with information about the burglaries should contact the Pittsfield Police Department detective line at 413-448-9705.
