Breaking News: Westchester Man Charged With $150,000 Superstorm Sandy Scam

Two Cars Broken Into in White Plains' Battle Hill

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- Two cars parked in the Battle Hill neighborhood were broken into Wednesday evening, resulting in nearly $1,620 worth of stolen goods, police said.

A Scarsdale man told police he discovered the rear passenger window of his car was broken after leaving the City Limits Diner at approximately 8:20 p.m. According to police reports, the 57-year-old man left his briefcase on the back seat, which was visible to those outside of the 2010 Toyota Prius.

A wallet containing the man's license, $100, and credit cards was stolen from the brief case. A MacBook Air valued at $1,098.99 and an iPod Nano that cost $119.99 were snatched from underneath the passenger seat as well.

About an hour later, officers were called back to the neighborhood to investigate a second car break-in. A 30-year-old Poughquag, N.Y. woman told officers the front passenger window of her 2004 Honda CR-V was smashed when she returned from dining at Buon Amici.

An iPod valued at approximately $300 was taken from the car, parked at the corner of Harding Avenue and Russell Street, according to police reports.
