NEWPORT, RI — Several vehicles have been broken into in Newport over the last several days, resulting in items being stolen, according to police.
Police have asked for the public’s help identifying a potential suspect, the department said Thursday in a Facebook post.
The post includes a video that appears to show a man attempting to open the door of an SUV before walking away.
Anyone with information is asked to call Newport police Det. Jared Johansen at 401-845-5756, or email him at email@example.com.
Town officials also reminded residents the Newport Police Department has a voluntary community security camera program. If you have a home security system or video doorbell, you have the option of registering it with the police department.
The voluntary program, which was first introduced in 2022, is intended to help law enforcement in investigating package thefts and other neighborhood crimes.
Registration in the program is voluntary and may be canceled at any time. Town officials said personal information is kept confidential by the city, and the program is free.
More information about the community security camera program can be found on the city’s website.
