I finally located the issue of The Grafton News with the article about the break-ins at the MBTA's Grafton Commuter Rail station. This article ran in the May 21, 2008 edition.

The Grafton Police Department continues to receive reports of breaks

As a precaution, the Grafton Police Department strongly urges everyone to secure their vehicles, including the glove box, remove any items of value and take the keys.
