    Police investigate smash-and-grabs

    Rutland City Police are seeking a suspect and warning the public about a series of downtown smash-and-grab thefts from vehicles.

    Sgt. John Sly said Monday that in the past week a handful of people reported their locked vehicles parked downtown had windows smashed and purses as well as electronic devices stolen.

    Sly said police are working to identify a suspect in the cases. He urged the public not to leave any valuables in their parked vehicles, even if the doors are locked.

    Anyone with information is asked to call city police at 773-1816.
