Police say “numerous” vehicles were broken into overnight in the Town of Gates.
Most of the break-ins happened on the north side of town near the Greece town line and Long Pond Road. Officers listed Cotillion Court, Lightwood Lane, Youngs Avenue, Cole Avenue, and Hinkley Lane as break-in sites.
Officers say most of the thefts were just “miscellaneous items,” but a handgun was taken in one instance.
“Please make sure that you remove all valuables such as cash and electronics from your vehicles,” officers write. “Also, no gun should ever be left unattended in your vehicle.”
Police are asking residents to keep an eye out for anything suspicious and call 911 if they see something. At the same time, officers will be increasing patrols in neighborhoods.
