While Rye police haven’t made any arrests in a string of 8 broad daylight burglaries this month, the brazen break-ins appear to have stopped, said Rye police Lt. Joseph Verille.
“We’ve been quiet for the holiday period, so that’s a good thing,” Verille said. “Maybe they can see we have increased (police) activity and they move somewhere else, or it’s that they are incarcerated somewhere else.”
In November and earlier this month, half a dozen homes in Hix Park and Glen Oaks neighborhoods were hit, with the thieves taking jewelry and cash.
On Dec. 16, a home on Elizabeth Street was targeted when an alleged burglar tried to break in, but was scared away by the homeowner, Verille said. It’s unclear if that attempted break-in was connected.
Rye police have advised people to keep their lights on and lock their doors.
