A number of vehicle break-ins in Yorktown this past week has the police reminding residents to lock their vehicles – even if parked in their driveways – and not leave any valuables visible in their cars.
Yorktown Police Lt. Robert Noble said this week the department received reports of incidents in the areas of Campbell Road, Cordial Road, Hilltop Road, Mohansic Avenue and in the parking lot of Club Fit in Jefferson Valley.
The incident at Club Fit was reported at around 7:15 a.m. when a witness spotted a suspect described as a "male, black, tall, in his thirties' driving a white BMW with New Jersey plates, police said.
"This suspect was interrupted in attempting to commit a larceny and fled the area in this vehicle," Lt. Noble told Patch. "The residential larcenies from motor vehicles occur during the overnight hours."
Residents are encouraged to call in suspicious activity, such as vehicle dome lights illuminated late at night, exterior sensor light activations, and more.
If you see any suspicious persons or vehicles in the area, residents can notify the Yorktown Police Department at 914-962-4141.
