We are entering into the season when thieves target our residential areas for late afternoon and early evening burglaries. Since the sun goes down before many residents get home from work or school, their homes can be scouted as easy prey since a dark house advertises that nobody is home.
To help combat these thieves, remember to leave lights on or better yet install timers. Motion sensors are a great deterrent too.
Let’s all be great neighbors and look out for one another. If you see something suspicious feel free to contact us at (845) 359-3700 and the Orangetown Police Department will check it out.
