Residents should be sure to lock the doors and windows of their homes, Watertown Police said, after a pair of break-ins this week.

On Friday, the Watertown Police Department put out messages on social media alerting the public to the incidents.

The first one occurred on Lovell Road on Dec. 21, and police said entry was gained through a rear locked door sometime between 3 p.m. and 11 p.m.

In the late hours of Dec. 23, a Common Street home was broken into. The residents were in the first floor of their home and the suspect entered through an unlocked second story window. Police said the residents did not encounter the suspect.

In the Facebook post, the Watertown Police said, in part:

“We are asking area residents and visitors to be vigilant, to include locking your doors and windows. If you have a home surveillance system, please check it for any suspicious activity. Please call the Watertown Police if you see or hear anything out of the ordinary. Thank you.”

  1. I hope they try and break into my house….they will receive a mirror image imprint of a Louisville slugger label on their forehead!!!!!!

  2. Assuming that perpetrators are ever arrested for these kinds of crimes, what happens to them?

    Why is the public never informed of these cases’ dispositions?

    I have never known anyone who has any idea.

    I read about lots of crime here, but few arrests and no final dispositions are reported.

    Is it because they are given a slap on the wrist and so the prosecutors and police do not wish to tell the public?

    I think the answer is yes. I think they’re ashamed, as they should be.

    If we were to guess which of the two major political parties is softest on crime, which one would we think most responsible?

  3. “A second story window with the homeowners in the house? Was a ladder used? I know, stupid question, but any thief who resorts to such a brazen burglary deserves …….. well, I won’t say it, since it might “offend” some of those who have great compassion for criminals until it happens to them, but let’s put it this way, he wouldn’t be walking home!!!
