The Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office is currently investigating a series of vehicle break-ins that have occurred in the Town of Pleasant Valley and the Town of LaGrange during the overnight hours.

Although most of the targeted vehicles have been parked in driveways unlocked, some incidents have involved car windows being broken to steal property from inside the vehicles.

All residents are reminded to lock their vehicle doors. Residents should never leave any valuables in their vehicles such as a wallet, money, credit cards, gift cards, jewelry, electronics or firearms. If residents have motion lights or exterior camera systems, please make sure that they are functioning properly.

If you are a victim or if you have any information regarding these thefts, please contact the Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office at 845-486-3800.
