Car stolen in Edgartown, found in West Tisbury


Edgartown police Monday recovered a Honda Accord stolen from a home on Clevelandtown Road Friday morning. Police said the car theft appears to be the final act in a destructive spree through the neighborhood.

There is evidence someone broke into a vehicle nearby, then broke into a shed, then tried to cut some bicycles off a car rack, then stole the Honda.

Police found the stolen vehicle in a parking lot near Alley’s General Store in West Tisbury, after a caller reported the vehicle had been there for several days.

Police are still investigating the theft, but have not yet made any arrests.
