DUTCHESS COUNTY, N.Y. - The East Fishkill Police Department has issued an alert to residents regarding an uptick in auto larcenies in neighborhoods within the town.

According to police, the department and law enforcement agencies in nearby municipalities have seen an increase in thefts from unlocked cars that are parked in driveways overnight.

Police said that there has been a particular increase in neighborhoods on top of Stormville Mountain.

“Residents are reminded to always keep cars locked and remove valuables. Keeping outside lighting on may also prevent your home from being targeted by thieves.”

Anyone who believes they have been targeted by thieves, or who see anything suspicious at night can contact the East Fishkill Police Department at (845) 221-2111.
