    Winchester police are investigating a rash of burglaries from vehicles.

    Police say the burglaries occurred overnight Friday into Saturday in the Colony Drive area. The suspects entered unlocked vehicles and stole items including sunglasses, loose change, and a laptop computer.

    "These individuals are most likely traveling on foot and looking for an opportunity for a fast and easy theft. And if they were on Colony Drive last night, I'm sure they'll be roaming other neighborhoods again, especially with the warmer weather," Sgt. Kevin Kinahan said in a release.

    Police are urging residents to lock their vehicles and be on alert for any suspicious activity in the area. Anyone with information should contact the Winchester police department at 860 379 2721
