SOUTHINGTON – Police on Tuesday released a photo of a vehicle believed to be tied to some of the 18 recent car break-ins reported in town.

The vehicle, shown in image stills captured by video surveillance, is a dark sedan with what appears to be tinted windows.

“This is still an active situation involving this vehicle,” police Lt. Keith Egan said Tuesday. 

Egan encouraged anyone with information about the vehicle to contact Southington police at 860-378-1600.

The release of the images came a day after police said they are investigating 18 car break-ins reported in just over a month. In each of the “smash and grab” vehicle burglaries recently reported, police said, all of them have involved valuables that were left in plain view of a locked vehicle. 

The most recent rash of car burglaries has spanned from early August through this past weekend. A majority of the break-ins were reported outside commercial establishments, while a few occurred at private residences.
