Rye PD has advised residents this evening of four homes being robbed this afternoon in Rye. Here is the official message sent by Rye PD:
"4 BURGLARIES OF UNOCCUPIED HOMES 12/29/10, AFTERNOON/EARLY EVENING. CALL POLICE IMMEDIATELY RE: SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY
On Wednesday, December 29, 2010, between 2:30 PM and 7:00 PM, four residential burglaries were reported in the City of Rye. Although they were at scattered locations – Stuyvesant Avenue, Glendale Avenue, Locust Avenue, and Kirby Lane North – all involved forced entry into unoccupied homes.
We encourage residents to take standard precautions: lock windows and doors, set alarms, and leave exterior lights on. If you are traveling during this holiday period, don’t let your house appear empty: leave lights on, stop newspaper delivery, and ask neighbors to keep an eye on your property. Most importantly, please call the police immediately if you observe suspicious activity, either by dialing 911 or the main number, 967-1234. Thank you."
