A dozen vehicles entered over weekend in Fairfield

Electronics left behind; computer taken, found outside office

A computer was removed from one of at least a dozen vehicles on six Fairfield streets entered over the weekend, but it somehow made its way to the outside of its owner’s office.

An Eastlawn Street resident visited police around 7:25 p.m. Saturday to report that a computer had been taken out of a vehicle overnight. The man learned of the incident when he arrived at his Walls Drive office at 3:15 p.m. and saw that bag that contained his computer, and that he left in another vehicle overnight, leaning against the wall of the building.

The man returned home and checked the vehicle, which he found had been rummaged through, but only the laptop recovered at the office was missing. Loose change was taken out of another vehicle.

No business cards with the address off the office were in the bag, police were told.

A Garmin that was not in either car at the man’s residence was left in the bag. Police took custody of that.

Three other vehicles on Eastlawn Street and James Street, which are next to each other and intersect with Old Field Road, were entered overnight Friday into Saturday.

A James Street resident called police at 11:50 a.m. Saturday after finding the contents of his 2013 BMW 5 Series scattered about. The car had been entered overnight.

A resident of Eastlawn Street called police around 2 p.m. to report that the registration certificate had been taken out of a Chevrolet Tahoe parked in the driveway between 8 p.m. Friday and 4 a.m. Saturday.

Electronic items in plain view and two sets of keys were left inside a Lexus RX330 that was left unlocked in an Eastlawn Street driveway between 10 p.m. Friday and 4 a.m. Saturday. The registration certificate and insurance card were stolen out of the glove compartment.

Thefts were also reported on streets in the area of Mill Plain and Unquowa roads.

A Maglite flashlight worth $5 was the only taken out of an unlocked vehicle entered on Henry Street between 9 p.m. Friday and 5 a.m. Saturday.

A Henry Street resident reported that a Garmin GPS unit worth $150 was stolen from a vehicle left unlocked in the driveway between midnight at 7 a.m. Police were called at 2:35 p.m. Saturday.

A Brookbend Road resident called police at 5:03 Saturday to report that four unlocked vehicles were entered while parked in the driveway overnight. A faceplate and two auxiliary cords for an iPad, worth a total of $100, were stolen out of a Honda; a Garmin, a phone charger and a cable, worth a total of $180, were stolen out of a Ford Mustang; assorted change was removed from a GMC Yukon; and nothing was missing from a Chevrolet Tahoe that was entered.

A Pell Meadow Drive resident told police at 3:55 p.m. Sunday that a vehicle in the driveway had been entered the previous day. A black wallet worth $50 and a black air pistol worth $35 were removed from the unlocked vehicle.

At 7 a.m. Monday, a Melville Avenue resident reported that two unlocked vehicles were entered between 10 p.m. Sunday and midnight.
