GPS units targeted in Great Neck thefts
Nassau police say thieves have stolen about a dozen Global Positioning Systems from cars in Great Neck over the last month.
According to authorities, the robbers are targeting unlocked vehicles left in driveways. So far, cars on Allenwood Road, Bentley Road, Bellingham Lane and Cambridge Road have been robbed.
Police say in most cases, the GPS devices were left out on car seats and were visible from outside the vehicles.
Residents say Great Neck typically has one of the lowest crime rates on Long Island. Some believe an increase in police presence could prevent future thefts.
