Search Continues For Thieves Spotted On Camera During Rocky Hill Soccer Game

Thieves spotted on dashboard camera footage breaking into parked cars during a youth soccer tournament in Rocky Hill earlier this month remain on the lam.

Police said their investigation into the brazen afternoon burglaries on a cloudy Sunday, Oct. 8, continues.

Sgt. Steven Morgan, a spokesman for the department, said Monday that police are working with other agencies to track the stolen credit cards lifted during the thefts.

That afternoon, as parents watched soccer, at least two thieves slinked low between cars apparently looking for wares to steal, a dash camera video released by the department shows.

A window was smashed on one vehicle and a thief can be seen running off with a purse.

Morgan said at the time that other cars were broken into as well.

“They seemed to go after bags, purses and backpacks,” Morgan told The Courant.

Car break-ins are not uncommon in Connecticut. Departments across the state continue to urge residents to remain vigilant for such crimes.

But officials said this deviated from the norm.

““A, it’s daytime, B, it’s crowded and C, the door was locked and broken,” Morgan said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Rocky Hill police at 860-258-7640.
