Emergency personnel were busy this week in the city.
Three daytime robberies prompted police to reach out to residents while a reported student fall from over 25 feet in the air drew fire personnel. Extra vigilance is being called for by Police Chief Mark Leonard following three day-time break-ins Thursday. While no one was home at the time and no one was injured, police are asking for everyone in the city to be especially watchful.

Keeping the neighborhood safe is a matter of being extra observant and not brushing off things that look out of place, he said.

Police say recent daytime robberies have focused on easily transported items such as jewelry and cash.
Burglars have been focusing on small, easy to carry items during recent daytime robberies, said Police Chief Mark Leonard. “We don’t see them taking televisions and anything large. It seems to be smaller items," said the chief. These items can be easily transported and readily turned into cash in the case of jewelry, he said. This has been the case for three recent home robberies during the day in Marlborough. Another fits the pattern, but the time it occured has not been determined, he said. These fit with a series of break-ins that have been occuring in all the surrounding towns, said Chief Leonard. There have been quite a few in Northborough, where residents are on high alert. Jewelry has been a target in those break-ins. Receive …
