Residents should be aware that like many other area communities, Orange has experienced a rash of car break-ins recently.

Groups of people, usually teenagers and/or young adults enter a neighborhood and run through the driveways, pulling on the door handles of every car they see.

If the car is locked, they move on. If the car is unlocked, they enter it and search it for anything of value. Money, computers, purses, it doesn’t matter, they will take it.

If the key or the fob is in the car, they will take the entire vehicle.

Your best defense against this type of activity is to remove valuables from your car and ensure that it is locked.

If you see anyone or anything suspicious in your neighborhood, please do not hesitate to contact the Orange Police Department 24/7 at 203-891-2130.
