BRONXVILLE, N.Y. - Detectives in Bronxville are investigating a pair of “porch pirates” who stole packages from village residences valued at thousands of dollars.
Over the weekend, a Prescott Avenue homeowner reported to police that a package containing a $1,200 iPhone was taken from her property after UPS marked it delivered to her residence.
The complaint comes just days after a Parkway Road resident reported to police that she received the delivery of an iPhone valued at $700 on Nov. 4 and when she opened it on Nov. 24, the package was empty.
Police said that both incidents are currently under active investigation.
Other items on the Bronxville Police Department blotter from Nov. 25 through Dec. 5 includes:
- On Nov. 26, a Paddington Circle woman reported that a laptop valued at $1,600 was stolen. Police said that the vehicle was unlocked overnight and the alarm was not activated at the time of the larceny.
