Anywhere from three to five bandits targeted vehicles parked west of Crescent Avenue between 2 and 3 a.m., Lt. Thomas Dowling said. Cypress Court, Lyon Road and Sycamore Drive were among the streets cited.

"There is home video that is being viewed of them entering vehicles," Dowling said.

The lieutenant asked, however, that anyone who lives or has property in the area check their surveillance systems. If they find anything, he asked that they immediately notify police: (201) 652-5700.

Dowling once again urged owners to keep their vehicle doors locked and to never leave the key fobs inside.
