CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. -- Prompted by a recent slew of car break-ins, New Castle police have advised residents to protect their belongings.

New Castle and neighboring towns have experienced a rash of thefts from unlocked cars parked overnight in driveways, according to a Nixle e-mail alert sent out Saturday. 

Many of these cars targeted by thieves have valuable items left out in plain sight, police said. Valuables stolen recently include computers, GPS units, wallets, purses, credit cards, gift cards and cash, police said.

In Saturday's advisory message, police suggest residents lock their cars at night and remove any valuables that may present a temptation to criminals.

New Castle residents can call (914) 238-4422 to report any suspicious activity or individuals to the department, police said.
