Pelham Manor Police Investigating Car Break-Ins

PELHAM MANOR, N.Y. – Pelham Manor police are investigating a car theft and a series of break-ins that have occurred in the area of Wolfs Lane and Iden Avenue since the weekend.

An Iden Avenue resident told police Monday morning that he parked his father’s 2010 Toyota Tundra in the driveway at approximately 9:30 p.m. Sunday night and locked it. The man saw that his father’s car was missing when he left for work at 6:45 a.m.

The father came to the house and filled out an owner’s deposition and stolen vehicle report. The son told police that he had both keys to the car and did not hear any unusual noises during the night, so he did not know how anyone got into the car.

The son also went to police headquarters Tuesday night to report a suspicious man outside his home. He described the man as dark-skinned, Hispanic, age 28 to 35 and approximately 5’7” to 5’9”, according to the police report.

He told police the man was sitting outside his home in a late model white Toyota Camry with dark, tinted windows taking pictures of his mother’s car, a white 2010 Toyota Camry. He was also taking pictures of the neighbor’s vehicle and property.

The man approached him and asked what he was doing, to which he replied “taking a picture of that car because it does not have tinted windows and I want to see how it looked.”

The man told police that the man in the Camry was calm and drove away eastbound on Iden Avenue toward Pelhamdale Avenue.

The neighbor contacted police soon after to tell officers that his two cars had been broken into at some point between Saturday night and Sunday morning. He left both cars unlocked in his driveway.

Nothing had been taken from either car, but the contents of the glove compartment had been emptied onto the front seat and floor. Police told him to lock his cars and report any further activity.

He told police that he was not going to file a report until he realized that his neighbor’s car had been stolen and that he had filled out the suspicious person report earlier that evening.
