Dartmouth Police Looking into String of House Breaks

Since the end of April, the Dartmouth Police have been getting call after call about home breaks, and now they're asking for residents' help…


The Dartmouth Police Department is asking for the public's help with a recent rash of house breaks. Several breaks have been reported since the end of April and police are asking town residents to be aware of any suspicious activity or strangers in their neighborhoods. Residents are encouraged to contact us with any license plate numbers, vehicle and person descriptions of anything they deem to be out of place. These pieces of information can be quite important to any police investigation.

Residents are encouraged to document serial and model numbers on high priced items. We also suggest that residents should photograph valuable items such as jewelry and keep these pictures in a hidden place or in a safe deposit box. This information could later assist law enforcement in the identification of these items if they are recovered.

Residents are reminded to call the tip line at 508-997-9900 or the Dartmouth Police Department's Detective Division at 508-910-1775 with any information. This is part of an ongoing effort to devise innovative ways to further reduce criminal activity and nurture a partnership with the community. All tips (anonymous or not) are taken seriously and will be reviewed and followed up by the Dartmouth Police Dept.
