Park-And-Lock




The Southampton Town Police Department is urging residents to lock their cars overnight and to keep an eye on them, especially in Hampton Bays.

There has been a string of car burglaries. Detectives are investigating property thefts from vehicles in the hamlet after numerous residents reported items were stolen during the overnight hours.

Police are urging the community that if valuable property must be kept in the car, to take extra precautions, like setting car alarms, parking near motion detectors and/or video surveillance cameras, or simply removing all valuables from sight.
