Weâ€™d like to take an opportunity to write a few lines to commend the phone call by an alert citizen — who reported that persons were going through cars in the area of Beal and Lincoln Sts. in the early-morning hours last Thursday — and the subsequent quick police work that resulted in the arrests of four individuals who were charged with breaking & entering into the vehicles.
Winthrop residents always have played a key role in alerting police to criminal conduct in our community. The adage, â€œIf you see something, say something,â€ may be relatively new, but it has been the norm here in the Winthrop community for generations.
The swift response by our police officers in making the arrests also is typical of the excellent work that always has been the hallmark of the Winthrop P.D.
This incident once again showed the importance of the interaction between civilians and police officers in order to keep our community safe.
