Police Issue Burglary, Car Theft Advisories

Officials warn residents to take precautions in protecting cars and homes from break-ins.

On Aug. 5, a resident reported their cel phone stolen from their vehicle that was parked at the Shop Rite supermarket in Bedford Hills.

The mobile phone was an iPhone s4 valued at $600 and was on the driver's seat of an unlocked Jeep, according to police.

Because of this theft, and previous reports of car thefts (see stories, and ), police issued a warning to residents Tuesday via its Nixle alert system.

"Due to recent larcenies from vehicles in several locations within the Town of Bedford, the Bedford Police are reminding all persons to lock vehicles when unattended and not to leave any valuables in the vehicle. Bedford Police are continuing to request assistance from the public in obtaining any person or vehicle description relating to these crimes," the advisory read.

In addition, police are advising local residents that there have been recent daytime residential burglaries in the Loop Road and surrounding area.

Police Lieutenant Jeffrey Dickan told Patch that on Aug. 1, burglars broke into a Brook Farm Road home by prying a screen off and entering the home through the unlocked window. Almost $900 in jewelry was reportedly stolen from the home. And on Aug. 2, there was a break-in at a home on Appleby Drive in Bedford where the perpetrators pried a glass door open and reportedly stole a necklace and a pen.

"Please be diligent on reporting any suspicious persons or vehicles at the time of occurrence. Residents are reminded to continue to utilize all security measures available including Alarm Systems," police said.
