The Newtown Police Department is investigating the report of a car stolen from the driveway of an Indian Hill Road home. The 2017 silver Honda CR-V is believed to have been taken at about 2:30 yesterday morning. The vehicle was unlocked with the keys inside.
Newtown Police have arrested a man on an outstanding arrest warrant for allegedly stealing a car in Newtown. Police charged 22-year old Kevin Santos this week with Larceny. Police say his DNA was found in a recovered stolen car from Newtown. The car was stolen from a residence on Walnut Tree Hill Road in October of 2018.
In the past couple weeks, Police investigated several daytime vehicle break ins. The suspects have been identified and arrested in New Jersey. Newtown Police say they are apart of an organized gang that targets the entire east coast, moving state to state in a rental car. In every stolen vehicle from Newtown and the surrounding towns, the cars all had the keys inside.
Police are reminding residents to lock cars, take valuables out, not to leave the keys inside.
