BOSTON (WBZNewsRadio) - Boston Police are out with a new warning after several car thefts from health club facilities across the city. Now authorities are looking into possible connections to similar occurrences in other nearby cities and towns.

Police say suspects access the gyms by creating day passes using false information, others may gain access by asking to use the restroom. Once they're inside, the suspects look for unsecured lockers for things like cash and car keys. Keys are then used to unlocked parked cars and steal them.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the BPD Auto Theft Unit at 617-343-4430.
