The Deal NJ community is on edge, after many high-end vehicle were stolen recently, with the rash of thefts continuing.
As YWN reported at the end of June, expensive vehicles were stolen, including a Porsche SUV, a Range Rover an an Audi.
But it hasn’t stopped, and since then there have been multiple additional vehicles stolen.
Among the vehicles that were stolen include 3 Ferrari’s, 2 Porsche tucks, a Bentley and a BMW X6M.
Meanwhile, Deal Police are placing the blame of the thefts on the car owners.
Deal Police released the following statement:
Over the past week we have AGAIN taken reports for multiple stolen vehicles. Every single vehicle was left unlocked with the keys inside. This is gross negligence on the part of the vehicle owner. Our officers have been involved in multiple attempts to stop the vehicle thefts from occurring. There is absolutely no excuse for this. Our officers have been placed in very dangerous situations because our residents refuse to LOCK their vehicles.
With repeated alerts through social media, Nixle, reverse 911 alerts and our officers speaking directly with our residents, it still seems to be falling on deaf ears. In some instances, doors were left wide open with the vehicle running.
YOU continue to invite a criminal element into our community due to your behavior. You must LOCK your vehicles and remove the keys and key fobs. These criminals are well aware that your vehicles are unlocked and you leave the keys inside. Without your cooperation and due diligence this problem will only get worse. LOCK YOUR CARS!
