Charlestown police urge residents to be vigilant after burglaries
The first burglary happened at Emma’s Market & Deli on Old Claremont Road overnight Wednesday Jan. 22 to Thursday Jan. 23, said Charlestown Police Chief Patrick Connors.
Then overnight from Friday to Saturday a hair salon in the same building, Unique Inspirations by Alicia, was broken into and an undisclosed amount of cash was taken, Connors said.
Connors said it is likely an increase in heroin and opiate use is behind a rise in burglaries everywhere; local law enforcement are teaming up to solve the break-ins.
Connors is also advising residents — though they live in a small community — to be vigilant by locking their doors and vehicles and reporting suspicious activity.
“It’s a common place for people to gather and have their coffee,” Connors said. “The owner of it is just a great guy, an active member of the community. Just to see him victimized is heartbreaking for us. … When something like this happens in a small community like Charlestown, it’s like the whole community feels victimized.”
