HASTINGS-ON-HUDSON, N.Y. Items stolen in recent local burglaries could turn up soon after Hastings police announced the recovery of goods taken in a Burnside Dr. theft, which occurred on Jan. 6, in an arrest by Yonkers police.
Hastings Police announced in a press release that 11 Yonkers residents were arrested on Friday, Jan. 6 and charged with various crimes. After a drug investigation, a search warrant was executed by the Yonkers Police Departments Narcotics Unit and Emergency Service Unit the same day on a Yonkers residence on Warburton Ave. During the search there were guns, narcotics, cash and various electronic items recovered. Among the electronics were two items reported taken in the Hastings burglary.
Hastings police said there is currently an ongoing investigation by the Mount Pleasant Detective Division to return recovered stolen property regarding the recent county wide burglaries.
This investigation is still in its infancy and many departments throughout the county continue to work extremely hard to determine where these suspects have been and what crimes that may have committed, Hastings police said in a press release. It is also of utmost importance that as much property can be returned to the owners and that they can get some piece of mind.
Hastings police also had some tips for residents to recover stolen property quicker in the case of a theft.
In addition, all homeowners should keep a list of all of the serial numbers on all of their electronic devices, so that in the event that something is stolen, it makes the recovery process much quicker and exact, police said.
Hastings police said it is believed the suspects had been using public transportation to travel to different areas in the county to commit the burglaries and return to Yonkers using the same route. Police said local residents should be aware in their neighborhoods and to call the police department immediately any suspicious activity is seen.
