All,

Below is a series of emails regarding some suspicious activity/break ins that have been occurring in Westford and posted from the Front Porch Forum.  Be alert for any suspicious vehicles that may be in the area and on some of our back roads that don't look like they belong.   The suspicious cars that have been seen are a red Honda Civic and a silver/black pickup.  If you see unusual activity jot down plate numbers or snap a quick picture with your phone and report it to the police.  It may be nothing, or it may be the key that law enforcement is looking for to tie a case together.

Hi,
    Thank you for posting the suspicious car seen on Woods Hollow. On Monday morning
of this past week I saw the red car setting at the end of Phelps road. No one was in it. The position and location of the car seemed suspicious to me also. In addition to this, I saw a pickup truck parked down the road 1/4 of a mile parked with a male driver. Curiosity did make me think what could be going on.
 Of course this past Monday it was super hot 87 degrees.  The truck had it's window down, so I assume no AC. I thought maybe the pickup was a spy to let the red car person know if someone was to approach.
 But what was even more bizarre was I got to Westford Village and there was a blue car parked on Common Road with a male driver with his window down. I assume no AC also. But at 87 degrees it's got to be hot setting there.  I couldn't figure out what was going on, if anything. Just odd
    The only reason I took the back roads was because of the paving on Rte 128.Westford folks,
  Be aware

   Later my wife told me this car was sitting just down from our house two months ago with a male driver. She walked by with the dog and spoke with a neighbor who said the car had been there 2 days in a row.The neighbor said it loud enough to my wife, that the police should be called as the car looked suspicious. Loud enough for the driver to hear. When he heard that he drove off.
   Apparently, the day I saw these vehicles on Phelps road, they had numerous breakins.  If only people would communicate this, they would have been caught.

Hi,
I have heard from someone with a friend in law enforcement that the red Honda civic and a silver/black pickup belong to the same folks and they are known to be trouble makers.
It would not surprise me if that other car on the common was somehow involved, just as the pan handlers in Burlington are networked and spreading out into surrounding communities so too are the folks who are struggling to support a drug habit and unfortunately our sleepy little trusting town is an easy target.
I think you should post your sightings to FPF and report the activity to the State Police.
If you are not comfortable posting your observation to FPF, I would be happy to do it for you, if you wish.
Also, the fire warden is contacting the State Police to see what is involved in establishing a "Neighborhood Watch."
It bothers me to think we need to start locking our houses and making note of cars and strangers we see in our neighborhood but I think this problem is going to get worse before it gets better and we best get a jump on it.
Ill keep you posted on the NW.  And next time you travel the dirt roads and come across parked cars/trucks try to get the plate number... cars with plate numbers gives the state police something to take action on.
Best case scenario is that we organise and get the word out... world travels back to the druggie community that Westford is organised and actively watching and they decide to do their stealing some place else.
Thanks for sharing"

MKR, we should start a Fairfax Neighborhood Watch section... Or even a Group on Facebook.  Gathering intel is the single most important step to helping police make arrests and stopping this type of crime.

A Fairfax Neighborhood Watch would be a great idea!  I would definitely support that and assist any way I could.

I think this might have come up before with the Select Board.
