Thieves steal electronics from home as Oak Bluffs family sleeps


Oak Bluffs police are investigating a break-in at a house on Monhegan Avenue, that occurred as the homeowners slept upstairs. The thieves entered the house in the early morning of June 22, through an unlocked door.

The thieves stole three Apple Macbook computers, an Apple iPad, an Apple iPod and backpacks, Oak Bluffs police lieutenant Tim Williamson said.

“The homeowner said he heard a noise but thought it was one of his kids getting up,” Lieutenant Williamson said. “The house was unlocked, there was no forced entry.”

The homeowners are year-round residents. Lt. Williamson would not release their names or the address, because, he said, the investigation continues.

Anyone with information is asked to call Oak Bluffs Police at 508-693-0750.
