Town sees spate of car burglaries

A wave of car break-ins swept across a small area of Marblehead on Saturday night.

Police report that at least seven cars were burglarized, including one on Beach Street, two on Devereux Street, one on Baldwin Road, one on Locust Street and two on Gilbert Heights Road.

Police say they first learned of the thefts around 8 a.m. Sunday when a resident reported the theft of a wallet and some change from her Acura. Six more reports came in over the next eight hours. Items stolen included wallets, credit cards, change, CDs and an MP3 player.

One victim on Locust Street reported to police that a guest of hers had chased off somebody trying to break into a car around 1 a.m. Police say the guest did not get a good enough look at the suspect to provide a description.

Another victim reported that whoever stole change from her car on Gilbert Heights Road left behind somebody else’s sunglasses and MP3 player.
