NEW CITY — A number of residential break-ins in the vicinity of Springbrook and Pascack roads in Nanuet have Clarkstown Town Police concerned and they are seeking assistance from town residents in observing crime prevention habits before leaving their homes unattended.
Most of the recent burglaries have occurred during daytime hours, possibly late morning to noon with entry gained mostly through the rear of the house by either using an unlocked door or by forcing the door. Stolen items have included small electronic items, cash and jewelry.
Police advised residents to make sure all windows and doors are locked and secured. All outside doors should be solid and have a double dead bolt lock. Hedges and brush that could obstruct the view of entry points should be trimmed back and burglar alarms should be activated before leaving and valuables, including cash and jewelry should be hidden.
Victims of burglaries are advised to report them to the police immediately.
