BRONXVILLE, N.Y. - Detectives in Bronxville are investigating a pair of “porch pirates” who stole packages from village residences valued at thousands of dollars.

Over the weekend, a Prescott Avenue homeowner reported to police that a package containing a $1,200 iPhone was taken from her property after UPS marked it delivered to her residence.

The complaint comes just days after a Parkway Road resident reported to police that she received the delivery of an iPhone valued at $700 on Nov. 4 and when she opened it on Nov. 24, the package was empty.

Police said that both incidents are currently under active investigation.

Other items on the Bronxville Police Department blotter from Nov. 25 through Dec. 5 includes:

  • On Nov. 26, a Paddington Circle woman reported that a laptop valued at $1,600 was stolen. Police said that the vehicle was unlocked overnight and the alarm was not activated at the time of the larceny.
  • The following day, a Pondfield Road business owner reported a phone scammer who posed as a Con Edison employee who demanded $1,500 in same day green dot money cards to avoid having the power to his establishment cut off, despite the fact that he was up to date on his bill payments.
  • Police arrested 36-year-old Mount Vernon resident Roger Coakley on Nov. 29 for a misdemeanor charge of operating a motor vehicle with a suspended registration. He was also cited for operating without insurance and having an uninspected vehicle. He was processed at the scene and released on his own recognizance.
  • On Dec. 1, a Pondfield Road homeowner reported that a 1,000-pound boulder valued at more than $2,000 was stolen from her property. The incident is being investigated.
