I have heard from several residents and from the Ramapo Police that last night in the Dutch Village area of the Village (Amsterdam Ave, Holland Lane …) items were stolen from several cars that had been left unlocked and one car was stolen (the keys had been left in the unlocked car). The Police are currently investigating this crime of opportunity.
If you live in the area, please check to see if you too are a victim, and if so, please contact the Ramapo Police at 845-357-2400. In addition, if you have any information that would be useful to the Police in their investigation, I urge you to contact them as soon as possible.
This is not the first time this type of crime has happened in the Village, though the last time I am aware of was a couple of years ago. Please safeguard your possessions, by keeping your cars locked when they are outside of your homes and not leaving valuables in your cars.
