The Larchmont Police Chief is urging residents to keep the doors to their homes and cars locked following a rash of burglaries in the usually quiet village.
In an automated telephone call to residents Tuesday night, Chief John Poleway said that police responded to reports of five home burglaries, two attempted burglaries and numerous car entries over the past several months.
All of the reported cases involved thieves entering homes and cars through unlocked doors, Poleway said; In one instance, a burglar apparently got into a house using a garage door opener left in an open car, he said.
Poleway urged individuals to report any suspicious behavior to the Police Department.
The non-emergency phone number is 834-1000. In the event of an emergency, however, call 9-1-1.
