The houses are located on Adams Street, Madison Street and Watson Road.

Belmont Police are asking residents to remain vigilant following a string of burglaries this week. An unidentified suspect broke into three homes early Monday morning, according to a press release from the Belmont Police Department.

The houses are located on Adams Street, Madison Street and Watson Road. Police said the suspect appeared to be walking through backyards to move discreetly from house to house. A short surveillance camera video clip posted to Facebook by the department showed a person slowly walking down a driveway while wearing a mask and hat.

The suspect cuts screens to gain entry into homes, either through open windows or unlocked front doors, police said. The person is likely to target electronics and other valuable items. According to the press release, four laptops were stolen.

Belmont Police are increasing targeted patrol activity in the area where the incidents occurred and detectives are working full-time on the case, according to the press release.

Residents should be on the lookout for someone parking in front of homes and then walking down the streets or around corners, police said. You should also keep an eye out for any strangers wandering around neighbors’ houses or through backyards.

“Criminals often monitor residents’ entry and exit patterns and often strike when people are at work or on vacation during the day,” the press release said.

For investigative information only, individuals should contact the BPD Detectives at 617-993-2550. For all other concerns they should call 617-993-2501.

The following tips were offered by the Belmont Police Department:

  • Use stable doors, e.g. B. those made of solid wood, which are reinforced with steel. These offer more protection than wooden hollow doors.
  • Use good quality bolt locks, these cannot be “popped open” like a spring bolt lock.
  • Always lock windows on the first floor.
  • Those with security systems should place highly visible security stickers on their property as this deters criminals.
  • In an apartment building, the outside door should always be locked. Criminals who break down an exterior door have extra time and privacy to break down interior doors.
  • Turn on the front and back porch lights at dusk.
  • If you leave a home unattended, residents should turn on a radio or use timers on interior lights to give the impression that someone is staying inside.
  • The most important thing, police said, is to introduce yourself to the neighbors. Consider having a neighbor or friend look after the house when you’re out of town.
