Vernon police are telling residents to be on the lookout for any suspicious activity in their neighborhoods.
And lock their doors and windows while they investigate several residential burglaries that have occurred over the past few weeks.
"If you go out, make sure the doors and windows are locked," Lt. William Meier of the Vernon Police Department said as a suggestion to residents.
Meier said the burglaries have generally happened during daytime hours, but police have had some reports of suspicious activity at night.
Three hours after sending out a news release about the matter on Monday, three burglary related calls came in Meier said.
Several of the burglaries have taken place in apartment complexes, where it is easier for a stranger to blend in with the surroundings, Meier said. Nevertheless, several calls have come in from other residential neighborhoods all over town, he said.
"Anyone who observes suspicious activity should immediately report it to police," Meier said.
In addition to suspicious activity complaints, police have also received several complaints about peddlers over the past few days, according to the police calls log.
"Examples of suspicious activity include an individual or group of individuals who knock on a resident’s door without any legitimate reason to do so, or individuals who are seen walking behind buildings they do not live in," Meier said.
Vernon Police said to call 860-872-9126 to report suspicious activity or to call 911 if the matter is urgent.
