Southtowns Alert: Have You Seen This Pickup? [PHOTO]
The fall is here and the weather has changed from hot and humid to crisp and frosty. The sun is setting even earlier these days and that has brought out some bold individuals who are waiting to take advantage of opportunities to take things.
The Neighborhood App in the Hamburg/Orchard Park area has been bussing the past few weeks because of a string of break ins that have happened and a similar truck has been seen around the areas these incidents are happening. These two below are just a few miles apart and you can see a pickup truck pull up and take off around the time the break ins have happened.
These are just the most recent reports of break-ins in the Southtowns. The past few months, police in Hamburg, Orchard Park and East Aurora have been alerted to thefts of and in vehicles. The best advice is to remember to lock the car or truck in your driveway. Keep it in a well lit area and try to keep any valuables out of view or out of the vehicle. These videos show that the thieves only need a few seconds to grab what they want and drive away.
If you don't have a security system, it may be a good idea. Video monitors and motion sensor lights are a great addition to any home.
