The rash of burglaries in the Larchmont area appear to be ongoing and extending to new parts of the community.
Burglars hit homes within blocks of each other this weekend, taking jewelry from one house and a laptop computer from another. One burglary was on Kenmare Road in the Town of Mamaroneck, while the other was nearby on Hall Avenue in the Village of Larchmont. Both cases resemble those in the Gardens Lake area from September and October that were the focus of a community meeting between residents and police on October 29.

There was another forced entry in the Town of Mamaroneck on Copley Road, sometime between October 27 and November 1, reported Mamaroneck Town Detective Thomas McDermott. Someone entered the home through a front patio door. However it does not appear that anthing was taken.
The Kenmare Road burglary probably occurred on Saturday evening, November 7. The thief or thieves broke a screen and entered through a first floor window. They stole all the jewelry of value in the home; some items were in sight and others were found by relatively neat rummaging.
Burglars entered through a basement door on Hall Avenue. “It looks like the door was forced,” reported Lt. Antonino Rigano of the Larchmont Village Police Department. “We’re still looking at what was removed,” he said. A laptop was missing and there may have been some jewelry taken.
Lt. Rigano said, “We’re in the process of comparing the recent burglaries and will be looking for similarities,” between the Larchmont case and those in Mamaroneck Town.
“They all do seem similar to those we had the meeting about,” said Det. McDermott.
There were also burglaries reported in the overnight hours of November 1 at several office suites in the same building on Larchmont Avenue. One office reported $15 cash missing. There were attempts made on four other offices, but there was no other property reported missing. “I don’t think they were related,” said Lt. Rigano, referring to this week’s burglary.
In a separate case, a Chatsworth Avenue resident reported to police that a stereo and other equipment worth more than $1400 had been removed from his car overnight on November 5.
