DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — What is becoming a significant crime wave in West and Central Delray Beach continues as PBSO is investigating several car thefts and vehicle vandalism reports in The Oaks and Addison Reserve. The latest reports come on the heels of vandalism and thievery in Saturnia Isles, Seven Bridges and Stone Creek Ranches. The communities run from 441 to the west, Clint Moore Road to the south, Atlantic to the north and Jog to the east.
The latest crimes are reported on Middle Brook Way and Grand Estes Way in the Oaks, Addison Reserve Drive, L’Aquila Way, Villa D Este Way and Floranada Way in Addison Reserve. The crimes are reported as burglary, car theft and vandalism.
BocaNewsNow.com has received unconfirmed reports that many — but not all — of the car thefts and “theft from car” reports involve vehicles with New York and New Jersey license plates, suggesting that theives are targeting new residents or visitors who believe they are protected by gates. Some, but not all, of the cars targeted were left unlocked with electronics and cash visible.
Several communities throughout the area have increased patrols but the crime reports continue.
From PBSO at 5:07p Thursday:
“Suspects took the vehicles from the victims driveway. I am told the vehicles were unlocked with the key fobs inside.”
