Wellesley residents: Beware summer break-in attempts

Wellesley intruder

Caught on camera

With school out in Wellesley, many residents have begun jetting off to their summer homes or vacation spots, and bad actors are only too happy to pay their abandoned homes here a visit.

One Wellesley family had a scare last night when an interloper looked for ways to break into their house in the Dana Hall/Hunnewell area. A security system (Ring doorbell) caught the action on video, and a resident spooked the intruder away by speaking over a microphone. Police are investigating.
