2 Yorktown Burglaries Prompt Police to Alert Community

Two burglaries in Yorktown last week, which were committed between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., have prompted police to alert community members and remind residents to report any suspicious activity. 

The first burglary occurred on Dec. 11 in the Mohegan Lake area. Police did not specify the exact location. The second burglary of a Darby Drive home on Dec. 12 prompted the help of the Westchester County Aviation Unit whose embers searched for the suspect to make sure no one was in the house before Yorktown police officers made an entry with a K9 unit. 

"In both crimes, a brick or large rock was thrown through a rear sliding glass door and entry into the residence was gained," Yorktown police said in a statement. "At this time, there is no suspect or suspect vehicle information available."

Police want to remind residents to secure their homes once they leave and secure all valuables in an area other than the master bedroom. They should also report any suspicious activity to the Yorktown Police Department at 914-962-4141. 

"Take note of people and or vehicles that seem out of place in the neighborhood," police said in a statement. "If you see something, say something."

These guys are going to get caught, or come to an abrupt end. In life, a sucking chest wound is nature’s way of telling bad people to rethink their life choices. Sorry. But true.
