Cops: Hicksville, Bethpage Targeted in Burglaries

The Syosset area is not yet out of the winter burglary spike as reports nearly tripled from the previous week in the Second Precinct.

Nassau County Police reported eight burglaries within one week in Hicksville, Jericho, and Bethpage.

Five of the eight incidents were reported in Hicksville at both commercial and residential properties. Some were relatively tame, like a Kiran Place break-in where nothing was taken. Other thieves made off with multiple valuables, like a Princess Street break-in where two safes, cash, and multiple video game systems were among the lost possessions.

Bethpage also fell victim to multiple burglaries with two reports on Norcross Avenue and Carol Road. Severity of the reports ranged from just cash being stolen to various electronics and jewelry.
