Dix Hills neighbors report string of car break-ins
Homeowners on McLane Drive in Dix Hills are dealing with a trend of car break-ins.
John DelMaestro says he woke up to several emails from his bank Wednesday alerting him about possible fraud.
He walked outside with his wife and noticed their cars were broken into.
"My cars are 60 feet from the street - they are right on the side of my house," DelMaestro says. "You got to have a little bit of gall to walk down the driveway to somebody's house to check that out."
His wallet and his wife's Mercedes car key fob were both apparently stolen.
Multiple other neighbors on the same street were also targeted.
In a Ring doorbell video posted on a Facebook group, a group of people can be seen walking up and down driveways with a dark colored car slowly driving down the street with no headlights.
On the same day of the surveillance video, home security footage caught a suspect rummaging through an unlocked car on a Campbell Drive driveway.
Nothing was taken in that scenario but police say there were at least three other similar incidents on different blocks.
Those cars were parked on Kilmer Avenue, Pickering Place and Gallatin Drive.
Police say a laptop, backpack and tennis racket were stolen
DelMaestro called the police, and says he has learned his lesson to always lock his car no matter where it is parked.
He hopes surveillance footage will help someone catch the suspects.
