SUDBURY, MASS. (WHDH) - Police are investigating in Sudbury after two break-ins at local homes that may be part of a troubling trend, police said on Wednesday. 

Police in a statement said the break-ins happened within a 48-hour span before 12 p.m. Wednesday on Twin Pond Lane and Cudworth Lane. 

Police said both homes belong to people of Indian descent who were away on vacation.

“Residential break-ins are infrequent for Sudbury, but regionally there is an increase exhibiting similar patterns,” Sudbury police said. “Specifically, evidence suggests that entry was gained through a 2nd floor window at both homes. This is consistent with an on-going residential break-in investigation, where often the victims are of South Asian and/or Indian descent.

Sudbury police have asked anyone who recently saw suspicious activity in either the Twin Pond Lane or Cudworth Lane areas to contact detectives.
