Police are warning residents to lock their vehicles after a car burglary that matches a string of others across the area.

Police said the latest break-in occurred at Poets Walk at Red Hook where thieves smashed a car window and made off with a purse that was inside.

 Similar thefts have taken place at Bard College and in Rhinebeck. 

The suspects are believed to be using a punch tool to gain entry and look for vehicles were contents are left visible in the front seats, Red Hook police said.

There are several other communities that are dealing with the same type of vehicle break-ins.

"This type of activity is typical of a group known as the 'Felony Lane Gang' which has known to be active in our area from time-to-time," the department said. "They are a group that is known to operate throughout the East Coast."

Police are asking residents to contact the police department if they see anything or anyone suspicious at 845-758-0060.
