MONROE, Conn. -- Monroe Police are once again urging residents to lock their cars after two more stolen cars and a rash of overnight thefts from unlocked cars.

Car owners should lock their cars at night, even if it is parked in their driveway. Do not leave keys or any other valuable items inside.

"It is happening all over our town and all over Fairfield County. Our patrol officers are working tirelessly to stop this and our detectives are working with other departments experiencing the same problem," Monroe Police said.

Thieves have been targeting unlocked cars all over the state, including Stamford, Darien, New Canaan, Trumbull and Greenwich.
