No leads in series of car break-ins, ATV theft in East Pembroke
Thieves made off with laptops, GPS devices, cash, backpacks and book bags during a series of break-ins to cars in the East Pembroke area this past weekend.
During the spree an ATV was stolen from a home on Read Road, East Pembroke.
Deputies are investigating the thefts but have no leads at this point, according to Chief Deputy Jerome Brewster.
There are about 20 known larcenies from Saturday and Sunday, Brewster said.
"Often times, we get a call of four or five larcenies and it turns out there may have been 15 or 20 more people who just don't report it," Brewster said.
The ATV stolen was left outside, but did not have its keys in its ignition. It was pushed down the road a ways and then apparently hotwired, Brewster says.
It's a 2009 Yamaha Raptor, white with red rims.
Brewster said another ATV was stolen in Darien about three weeks ago and later recovered in Lancaster.
It was apparently driven down a railroad bed and then abandoned.
"A lot of times these kids try to hide it in the weeds thinking it won't be found and they can come back and ride it again later," Brewster said. "They don't dare take it home."
Anyone with information that may assist in the investigation can call the Sheriff's Office at (585) 343-5000.
I was surprised and fortunate- my gps and my ID were still in my vehicle, yet my purse was dumped in the nieghbors' yard and a tube of lipstick was all that was missing from it.
