Car breaks-ins around Roger Williams Park Zoo

Posted: Updated:

By: Liz Tufts


Heaps of broken glass now splattered all across Elmwood Ave near Roger Williams Park Zoo. It's evidence left over from more than two dozen car break–ins. Providence police say thieves are targeting side streets around the park and they're doing it. While many are visiting the zoo's Jack–O–Lantern display.

Police say they're smashing windows and grabbing anything they can. The zoo's parking lot already has security but extra police patrols will be monitoring the streets in and around the zoo.

Police are urging park visitors to use common sense. Lock your cars, roll up your windows and don't leave anything valuable behind.
