EASTCHESTER, N.Y. A rash of car burglaries have caused the Eastchester Police Department to warn residents to keep their vehicles locked and to not leave items of value in plain sight.
Police received 11 reports Tuesday of cars being burglarized in the north end of town, according to Lt. Jeffrey Hunter, and another report Thursday of an incident that may have happened on the same day.
The 11 reports were made between 8 a.m. and 7:40 p.m. Four of the incidents were reported on Bradley Road, three on Lyons Road, two on Scarsdale Avenue and one on Locust Avenue.
We remind residents to lock their vehicles when they are left unattended or parked overnight, Hunter said Thursday. The majority of the burglaries were from cars left unlocked, he said. Hunter also said people should not leave anything of value in their vehicles, especially in plain sight.
Officers patrolling the area are aware of the incidents and will be paying special attention to the situation, he said.
Hunter said anyone who notices suspicious activity should call 961-3464 or 9-1-1.
