Ansonia Block Watch Aims to Build Community

ANSONIA >> Though police recently caught a suspect they believe is responsible for a rash of summer home break-ins in the city’s Hilltop section, neighbors are moving forward with a block watch program to ensure all eyes and ears remain vigilant.

An organizational meeting for residents interested in joining a Hilltop neighborhood block watch program will take place at 7 p.m. Thursday (Oct. 8) at the Hilltop Hose firehouse, 80 Pulaski Highway. The public is invited, though the meeting primarily aims to find Hilltop residents to join various block watch groups.

The city held a meeting last month, which drew more than 300 residents, to discuss numerous break-ins and attempted break-ins in August. Since then, police arrested city resident Devon Miller, 21, allegedly linking him to several home burglaries in Derby. Both Derby and Ansonia police believe Miller is allegedly responsible for the series of Hilltop burglaries, as well, though Miller hasn’t been charged with the Ansonia burglaries to date.
