Police Look For Armed Man That Tried to Break Into Cars in West Hartford – NBC Connecticut

West Hartford Police are searching for an armed man that tried to break into and steal cars on Monday.

Officials said the man was seen on surveillance video in the Berkshire Road area. The video shows a person pulling at door handles of multiple cars parked in a driveway while holding what appears to be a gun.

Detectives are investigating these robberies. A video of the incident is available here.

Police are reminding residents to lock their cars and hide their valuables. Anyone who witnesses a crime should contact officials.
