Thefts from Motor Vehicles – Various locations in the Town of Poughkeepsie, always remove valuables & lock doors.
The Town of Poughkeepsie Police Department is investigating a recent pattern of thefts from parked motor vehicles. These thefts have occurred in residential and business areas and Quiet Cove Park.
The following areas of the Town have been affected: Henmond Boulevard, Marshall Road, Manchester Road, Wing Road, James Street, Ridge Road, Townsend Avenue and the Lutheran Care Center. The common thread in these crimes is that the vehicles were left unlocked. Vehicle owners are strongly advised to follow basic safety rules to discourage thefts, such as not leaving valuables in your vehicle and always locking it.
At the Quite Cove Park on the Hudson River, near the Town of Hyde Park line, several vehicles have had their window smashed and valuables taken that were left in the vehicle. These larcenies have occurred primarily between 3:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.
Persons should keep a list of serial numbers or identifying marks on their valuables. Should the police recover any stolen property, it will be easier to get it returned to the owner.
