Police Warn Residents to Take Precautions Against Car Thieves

cartheifThe Scarsdale Police Department would like to alert residents to a recent increase in larcenies from vehicles. Residents are reminded to always keep their vehicles locked and to remove valuables from their parked vehicles. Vehicles parked at outdoor gatherings and sporting events are often targets for thieves. Never leave handbags, and valuable electronics and phones in plain view within your parked vehicle.

At home, try to park your vehicle in the garage if possible. If your car is parked outside, remove valuables and lock it. Use exterior lights, such as motion sensing lights, to illuminate your vehicle when left outdoors.

Always report suspicious activity to the Police Department immediately. If you see someone acting suspiciously around parked vehicles, call the police and try to provide a description of the person and any vehicle they may be operating.

I can't begin to tell you how many times, as a near 20 year resident, I've heard the line, in various forms that goes something like, "oh, that doesn't happen in Scarsdale," when applied to events endemic to human nature.

While we are fortunate to escape some of the severity and frequency of crime known to other locales, we certainly face our share of crimes that would so easily be thwarted by simply locking doors, putting obstacles in the way of the opportunistic criminal who will seek other easier to penetrate venues.

The crime never attempted is the call the Police don't have to respond to and risk their safety pursuing.
