Cars stolen from driveways in Ramapo

Posted: Updated:

A half-dozen cars were recently stolen in Ramapo, all of them taken right out of residents' driveways.



In each case, keys or electronic key fobs were inside.



On Pine Road, a Honda Pilot and a Ford Escape were stolen. Thieves also stole a 2012 Jaguar XJL on Meadowbrook Lane.



The three thefts come on the heels of three others over the weekend in the town.



Police don't know if the thieves are part of a professional car theft ring, but they say the suspects know what they're doing.



News 12 was able to contact the wife of one victim, who did not want to go on camera or be identified. She said her husband left his keys and other items in the car because the neighborhood has been safe.



"Definitely take your keys with you, whether electronic or a regular standard key," says Ramapo Police Lt. Mark Emma. "Lock your car."
