While the number of burglaries in Hudson is not up from last year, we did have three on the weekend of October 15. These incidents occurred in the Stonington, Abner Lane and Jonathan Drive areas. A possible suspect is shown in the photos captured on a nearby home security camera. The Hudson Police Department (HPD) is asking anyone with security surveillance cameras on their homes in those areas to review footage from October 15 through October 17 to look for any suspicious activity during that time. Contact the Hudson Police Department at (330) 342-1800 if you find something of interest to the investigation.
To date this year, there have been 24 burglaries compared to 30 last year. While the number fluctuates from year to year, we have been averaging about two per month over the past several years. As a comparison, the highest number of burglaries reported in the past 10 years was 55 in 2009. The lowest number reported was 19 in 2015.
Two of this year’s 24 incidents involved stealing alcohol from unlocked garages, so the actual number of attempted or successful entries into a home was 22. In the three recent incidents, no one was home, there was no alarm system, and entry was made through a rear door or basement window.
To understand the incidents that have occurred, here is information about this year’s statistics, followed by tips to minimize your risk of being a victim.
