Thieves stole three vehicles from two unlocked homes in the Cherry Valley Country Club in Montgomery Township over the weekend, while the residents were sleeping.
A homeowner reported their 2022 BMW X7 was taken on Saturday at 4:50 am, when burglars entered their home through an unlocked exterior garage door. Once inside the actor(s) stole the victims' wallet, purse, and vehicle keys. They then stole the victim’s BMW, which has a retail price of about $75,000. The victims were in the home at the time of the theft, but never had contact with the actor(s).
The second incident occurred early this morning (Monday), at 3:30 am. The burglars entered the Cherry Valley home through the unlocked front door. Once inside they stole the victim’s purse and two sets of vehicle keys. They subsequently stole the victim’s 2022 Cadillac Escalade (retail price is about $80,000) and 2021 Porsche Taycan, also valued at about $80,000. The victims and their family members were present inside the residence at the time of the thefts, but never had any contact with the actor(s).

The Montgomery Township Department of Police Services encourages residents to take an active role in crime prevention by keeping the following safety tips in mind.
Always lock your car doors after entering or leaving your vehicle.
Park in well-lighted areas.
Have your car keys in your hand so you don't have to linger before entering your car.
Check the interior of your vehicle for intruders before entering your car.
If you think you are being followed, drive to a public place or a police station.
Never leave your purse or wallet in plain view or in common accessible areas.
Always remove Key Fobs from cars, and don’t leave garage door openers accessible to a potential suspect that may try to enter your home.
Finally, if a crime does occur...report it. Everyone should consider it his or her responsibility to report crime. Many criminals develop favorite areas for committing crime, as well as predictable methods of operation. When you report all the facts about a crime, it helps the police assign officers in the places where crimes are occurring or where they are most likely to occur, and your report may help prevent a crime from reoccurring.
