Police investigate vehicle thefts


OGDENSBURG — City police are investigating a string of overnight thefts from vehicles on the same street that may have been committed by the same person.

Four complaints were received Wednesday morning and all of them were tied to vehicles that were parked on Washington Street.

Details on whether the vehicles were unlocked or forcibly entered as well as what personal property was taken from each of them were unavailable. But Sgt. Matthew R. Erwin said the proximity of the vehicles to each other led him to suspect that the same person or persons may have been responsible.

“They’re certainly not spread out,” he said. “It’s possible.”

The first call came at 7:21 a.m. from Michael J. Ripley, of 806 Riverview Towers, which is located in the 200 block of Washington Street. His vehicle was broken into at 904 Washington St. His complaint was classified as a larceny with a dollar value ranging from $50 to $199.

Tara L. Crowley, of 906 Washington St., called police at 7:40 a.m. Her call was identified as a larceny under $50.

An unidentified caller at 910 Washington St. also contacted police at 7:40 a.m. That was also classified as a larceny under $50.

Susan Cryderman, of 822 Washington St., called police at 7:58 a.m. Her complaint was identified as a larceny under $50.
