GREENBURGH, N,Y. -- Residents in Greenburgh are being asked to take the time to lock their vehicles after more than a dozen unlocked cars were entered on Tuesday in the Joyce Road area of Hartsdale.
Property was stolen from all of the cars and one car, with a key left inside, was stolen, said Town Supervisor Paul Feiner.
"We are stepping up patrols and asking residents to help protect themselves by locking their vehicles at night," he said. "This crime of opportunity is plaguing many communities in Westcheser and we believe the Greenburgh police have previously arrested the subjects responsible for last night’s crimes. Our officers have been in the Bronx most of the day following up."The Greenburgh police department also has a Neighborhood Watch Program. Neighbors who participate in the neighborhood watch efforts help the police look for suspicious activity, Feiner said.
"Let us know if you're interested in setting up a neighborhood watch program on your street. We can have a police officer meet with you and your neighbors at someone's home, provide neighbors with safety tips and advise you what action steps you could take to help us keep your neighborhood very safe," he said.
