PELHAM, N.Y. Items were stolen from three cars parked in the St. Catharines Church parking lot between Sunday at 8 p.m. and Tuesday at 8 a.m., the Pelham Police Department said. The police were notified of the incident when they received a call from a resident who was on his daily walk and noticed that the vehicles appeared to have been gone through.
None of the vehicles were damaged and all appeared to be unlocked, police said. One of the owners was at the scene when officers arrived and told the police he was missing a $100 Garmin GPS, a pair of binoculars with an unknown value, and approximately $4 in loose change, police said.
Another owner showed up and told the officers when he left his car in the lot and that he had not returned until he learned of the incident. His car appeared to have been entered and gone through, but nothing was missing, police said.
