Eight larcenies or attempted larcenies from unlocked vehicles were reported to the Barrington police last week over four days.
The first report came from a Sowams Road man on Wednesday, Aug. 7, at about 3:30 am. His barking dog awakened him and probably scared off the thief, who pawed through the glove box and consoles of two vehicles parked in his driveway. Nothing was reported stolen.
A Dana Road man made the second report about 9:24 am on Wednesday. A GPS system valued at about $200 was reported stolen.
The third report came on Thursday, Aug. 8, at about 8 am. A Lee Ann Drive man reported that a GPS, several watches and a pair of Ray Ban sunglasses were swiped from two vehicles parked in the driveway.

A Roffee Street man reported at 9:17 am that an iPod and charger worth about $250 were stolen from a car parked on the street.
A Howard Street woman reported at 10 am that a GPS was stolen from her daughter’s car. It was valued at $200.
