There have been some crimes and burglary attempts that were reported by the police of Nassau County and Lynbrook police departments. This is to remind us that even in small towns where its less populated, burglars and thieves can be present. Just recently in the area of Cedarhurst, New York a group of suspects broke into a home and kept 12 people hostage. They forced them to the ground at gunpoint and raided the area, the police reports.
Around 1 in the morning, four or five males concealed their identities by wearing bandanas over their face broke into the Cedarhurst residence. From the police reports, two suspects had handguns while they stole and robbed the victims while they were lying on the floor. They ravaged through their pockets and stole cellphones, jewelry and cash. They also stole even more money and jewelry from two safes that belonged to the residents.
In several nearby towns, other reports of burglary were also announced. The burglarized areas consisted of an IHOP restaurant; another home in Franklin Square and another home in North Valley Stream. Other thefts that were also reported were a GPS unit that was stolen from a parked car in Lakeview and another one in West Hempstead. Several items were also stolen from an unlocked car parked in West Hempstead.
Sometimes burglaries as threatening and frightening as the first one mentioned above cannot be escapable or avoidable. In cases where your life is on the line, it’s more important to survive than try to save your belongings that could be replaced later on. However in most cases such as car thefts, those can be preventable. Take for instance the unlocked car parked in West Hempstead. Perhaps if you took the time to make sure your vehicle was locked, then this type of incident won’t happen. You also have to remember, thieves are always looking inside vehicles to whatever they can grab. If they see something valuable insight, like your GPS device on the dashboard or even a cellphone lying on the seat, then your car will be more prone to car theft. You have to make sure you keep all your car valuables hidden or inside the compartment after use. It only takes a few minutes, even seconds for a thief to steal your valuables. All we ask is for you to take the time before you leave your car, to make sure they’re locked and that your valuables stay hidden and unseen.
Thousands of car thefts occur every month around the country. It’s just the simple things we forget to do like making sure we lock our doors or making sure the windows are rolled up all the way.
