Police Investigate Rye Rec & Brevoort Lane Larceny Cases

Rye Police are investigating several larceny cases; including three that took place during a soccer game at Rye Rec field.

Two larceny filled days are currently under "active investigation" by Rye Police Department. Police would not comment on whether any of the events of Wednesday, Sept. 14 and Friday, Sept. 16 were related. 

Rye police are investigating three cases of petit larceny that took place while the victims played on the Rye Rec soccer fields. 

In each of the three cases, iPods were removed from the unattended backpacks of teenagers. Police said the Sept. 16 incidents were still under investigation.

On the same day, police received a report of locker room theft from Rye High School. After school that day, a student discovered $80 and a Blackberry phone lifted from a locker.

Just days earlier, on Wednesday, Sept. 14, Rye police had four reports of larceny from parked cars.

An officer on patrol at 2:35 a.m. Wednesday morning discovered a grey Jeep on Rye Road with a broken front window, then discovered another similarly damaged car parked on Brevoort Lane. GPS units had been stolen from both vehicles.

Later that morning, around 9:22 a.m., another Brevoort Lane resident reported a GPS unit had been stolen from a rental car parked in their driveway by way of a broken window.

Police also received a report of a purse stolen that same morning from an unlocked car on Douglas Circle.

September 14th? We are just finding out about this crime spree now? What a disgrace. Either Rye Patch is not doing a good enough job of getting this info and then reporting it or the Rye Police are withholding info from them.
