Middlebury police are investigating a number of car break-ins over the last few weeks, including one this past weekend.
According to Acting Chief Richard Wildman, police received a complaint of a vehicle that had been broken in to while parked in the Chase Road parking lot for the Greenway on Saturday around 4:16 p.m. A purse, money and an iPhone were reported stolen.
A Connecticut State Police K-9 assisted Middlebury police and tracked from the vehicle, which led over to Fenn Road and Tucker Hill Road area of town. The dog was able to lead police to the iPhone, which was discarded.
This is the third car break Middlebury Police have investigated in the past few weeks.
Other areas that had cars broken in to were the Hop Brook Dam parking area at Straits Turnpike and Route 188 on October 17 and an earlier one on Steinmann Ave. in the parking area for the Greenway near the small bridge.
Police continue to investigate and are asking anyone who may have seen suspicious activity in these areas or has additional information to call Middlebury Police at 203-577-4028.
