Police warn residents to lock vehicles
Another rash of thefts from unlocked cars occurred in Nelsonville and Cold Spring overnight on Nov. 14.
Larry Burke, the officer-in-charge of the Cold Spring Police Department, said the agency had questioned a “person of interest” in the early morning hours but that no arrest was made. The Putnam County Sheriff’s Office is continuing the investigation, including review of surveillance camera footage.
Burke said the would-be thief rummaged through a number of vehicles but that there were no reports of anything being stolen. In other recent thefts from cars, only cash was taken.
