Screen Shot 2016-08-08 at 9.06.40 PMOrange Asst. Police Chief Anthony Cuozzo said that the vehicle stolen from Longmeadow Road this week was found in New Haven.

The OPD works with many area police departments on cases such as this because these things don’t occur only in Orange, but throughout New Haven County and beyond, often by the same individuals.

Cuozzo said the incidents, like Tuesday morning’s stolen car and other suspicious activity on Longmeadow are crimes of opportunity, most likely done by young people, not seasoned criminals.

Prevention Advice

There are several things residents can do to keep from being victimized.

Read this list, remember his advice and make it a daily practice.

Cuozzo said the Orange Police Department often receives calls AFTER and incident occurs.

• If you are awakened by strange noises or activity around your home or neighborhood, call the Orange Police at 203-891-2130 Immediately. Yes, even at 2 a.m. The Orange Police Department is open 24/7 and dispatchers and the shift commander are on duty at all hours of the day or night. When you call 203-891-2130 you will speak to a dispatcher who will make sure that one, two, three, or more patrol officers on duty responds to your neighborhood.

• If you see someone with a flashlight peeking into your car or a neighbor’s car, call 203-891-2130 immediately, so the investigation can begin and the individual may possibly be caught then and there. The longer you delay the more time you give this person to victimize you and your neighbors.

• These criminals are taking the advantage of the opportunity you have handed them. They’ll check your car door, and if it’s unlocked they don’t hesitate to climb inside and rummage through for the purse you’ve left on the seat or floor, the spare change that’s in your ashtray, glove box, cup holder or dashboard reservoir. Laptop computers and cell phones are an added prize for someone on a mission to take what doesn’t belong to him.

• Once again, LOCK YOUR CAR DOORS!!!! Remove valuables from your vehicle, or keep them out of sight, but Do Not keep your car unlocked and do not leave a spare key inside.

• Orange Police are here to protect and serve, CALL For Assistance IMMEDIATELY for anything that doesn’t seem right — “If you see something DO something” applies here too.
