A resident of Brookside Drive awoke this past Monday, March 16, morning to find the tires missing from her Honda Accord, and the windows to the driver’s side window of the car smashed, according to Police Commander Charles Heseltine.

Two other cars on Brookside Drive also had minor damage, Heseltine said, but neither showed any “forced entry.” However, he said that both cars were rummaged through, and sunglasses and loose change were taken.

According to police reports, detectives were called to the area to photograph the damaged cars and investigate the thefts.
