Three burglars steal cash and jewelry from a house in Orangeburg

Posted: Updated:

? Police say three robbers entered an Orangeburg house in Rockland Monday morning and left with thousands in cash and jewelry. They also tied up the homeowner and his mother upon departing, according to police.

The three men forced their way into the house around 4:30 armed with handguns. Authorities say this house is located in a low crime neighborhood, and believe this was not a random attack. They are considering the possibility the homeowner was targeted since he owns a business in New York City.

Neighbors say this type of incident hasn?t happened in 40 years. Police are asking anyone with information to contact 845-359-7000.
