Lock your car doors.
That is the advice from the Town of Poughkeepsie Police Department as they investigate a recent pattern of thefts from parked motor vehicles. They say the thefts are occurring in residential areas usually during overnight hours.
Recent thefts have been reported on Dutchess Turnpike, Overocker Road, DeGarmo Road, Taft Avenue, Marple Road, and North Grand Avenue.
