Multiple police agencies are looking for a possible burglar this morning in the area of Ellen Lane in Yorktown, police said. 

Officers from the Yorktown Police Department, New York State troopers and Westchester County police are on the scene where local police dogs, Westchester County police bloodhounds and helicopters have been deployed in search for the suspect. 

The possible burglary was reported at about 7:30 a.m. this morning, Yorktown police told Patch.

The suspect, who is described as a white male, fled on foot, police said.

Police did not have more details to release at this moment, but they said residents should be wary of anyone suspicious and if they see anything, they should immediately call the Yorktown Police Department at 914-962-4141.

A Yorktown resident, who lives in the area, said she saw the police cars speed up by her house and heard the helicopters overhead. She said her neighborhood is usually quiet and neighbors feel safe, but she alerted her neighbors of the ongoing activity – to make sure they lock their doors and keep their children inside.
