The vehicles included a 2011 BMW 355 hardtop convertible, a 2007 BMW M5 and a 2012 BMW X5. The total value is $220,000, according to police.
During the past month there have been several expensive vehicles reported stolen from driveways of homes in Dobbs Ferry.

"The suspect(s) involved in these crimes are believed to possess a device that enables them to detect either the ignition key or key fob from within the parked vehicle, thus allowing them to easily and discreetly steal the vehicle.
