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.”
