If you live outside Madison County, report it to your local law enforcement agency at once.
Sheriff Riley is asking the public to be aware of these incidents and to be attentive to securing homes and businesses, at all times, including the use of door and window locks, alarm systems activated (if installed), securing of valuables in a locked safe or off premise in a safety deposit box at your local financial institution.
If you are leaving the area for an extended period of time, you can notify the Office of the Madison County Sheriff through their website (madisoncounty.ny.gov/sheriff/home) and click on “Property Check Request” – Sheriff’s patrol will do cursory checks on your property during your absence.
“Trust your gut feeling,” said Sheriff Riley: “if you see suspicious activity, report it to your local law enforcement agency immediately by dialing 911.”
