Quincy Police are urging the public to be vigilant and hide their valuables after two dozen vehicles were broken into in two days.
Instead of searching for vehicles that were unlocked, police said the suspects smashed windows to gain access, which is unusual. The majority of the break-ins also happened while it was still daylight out.
Six vehicles were hit near 2 Hancock St. in the overnight hours Thursday. Police say 18 cars were broken into in the same way in the early evening on Saturday.
Lory Zimballati’s 2003 Buick was one of eleven hit in the Mellen Bray Condo House lot Saturday between 6 p.m. and 6:25 p.m. She said her belongings were rifled through and her neighbors had a few items stolen.
“I’m really shocked. It’s not the kind of car I thought anybody would want or want anything to do with,” Zimballati said.
Police said the crime spree didn’t end there. Seven more vehicles in the area of Quincy Commons were hit between 7 p.m. and 7:35 p.m. Saturday.
Investigators are searching for a motive and any surveillance video that could help with the case. Anyone with information is urged to contact Quincy Police.
