Belmont police Lieutenant Kristin Daley said residents should lock cars overnight. There have been recent car break-ins on Trapelo Road.
The theft of catalytic converters is alson on the rise. Daley advises residents and business owners to park cars in a well-lit area where they can be monitored by a surveillance camera.
Protect yourself from identity fraud
If you have ever been a victim of identity fraud or unemployment identity fraud, Daley says you should continue to monitor your accounts and credit score.
Do not wire money or purchase gift cards to eliminate threats
Daley also said if someone calls claiming they have a warrant for your arrest and asks you to wire money or purchase gift cards to get rid of it, this is a scam. No one should pay money to get rid of a warrant.
