WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. - Following a police alert cautioning of a recent uptick in auto larcenies, a woman reported that thousands of dollars in merchandise was stolen from her car while she was at her daughter’s softball game in Scarsdale.
A Carthage Lane resident reported to police that while she was parked at Supply Field for the game, someone had entered her Mercedes-Benz from the passenger’s side door and took the contents of her purse.
According to the woman, the purse was a “Todd Purse” valued at an estimated $1,200 with a Louis Vuitton wallet ($300) containing $100 in cash, a set of prescription glasses ($1,000) and her work issued iPad Pro ($750), as well as several personal items.
