A hiker reported to the rangers that they lost keys to their Toyota in the Blue Hills. Exact location unknown. They parked on Hillside Street.

Not exactly lost, someone crawled into my silver jeep tonight (soft top, zippered windows) at Houghton’s Pond between 6:30pm and 7:45pm and stole my pink backpack and smashed open the locked compartment between the seats and stole my red wallet. THinking maybe they ditched the backpack or checked the wallet and tossed it somewhere nearby, would be nice to get my backpack back or not to have to replace my ID and insurance cards…. 🙁 thank you in advance!!
Ugh. Hopefully, someone can at least find your backpack! So sorry that happened to you.
