YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: Ridgewood detectives were reviewing neighborhood surveillance video after an SUV was stolen and several vehicles broken into overnight.
Police said they got six reports of car entries on Heights Road, Crest Road and Sunset Avenue.
All were unlocked, Detective Chris McDowell said.
A 2009 Escalade was also reported stolen from a Sunset Avenue home.
McDowell reminded citizens to always lock car doors and never leave keys inside.
“Items that may be expensive and vulnerable to theft should not be left in the vehicle,” he said.
It’s also vital that citizens immediately report any suspicious people they see in their neighborhoods. Police don’t mind — they’d rather respond immediately and find nothing than be called too late and discover a crime was committed and the perpetrator long gone.
