ONEONTA – With six burglaries and two car thefts in the last 10 days, Oneonta police are warning Center City residents to lock their cars, doors and windows.

“This isn’t a student taking a chair off a porch and moving it a few houses up the block,” said Lt. Douglas Brenner, Oneonta Police Department. “The thieves are taking purses, wallets, cash, and electronics, anything that’s valuable and easily disposed of or sold. They’re not taking TVs or artwork.”

Additionally, two cars have been reported stolen, although one has been recovered. Still missing is a 2004 blue Honda Civic with NY registration GCD-1041.

Brenner advised that residents lock windows, doors and cars and keep valuables out of sight. He also recommends installing motion-sensing lights to deter thieves, and has stated that additional police presence will be dispatched to the neighborhood. Securing your home from potential thieves is extremely important.
