“Usually, there’ll be a rash of car larcenies, maybe 10 to 20, over the period of a few days and then we won’t have any for months at a time,” he said. “They seem to occur more frequently in the warmer weather- I don’t know why. There are no statistics that say ‘This crime always happens in warm weather,’ but it appears as if these types of opportunistic crimes do increase during the warmer weather months.
As of now, Peters said the department has developed some investigative leads that are being followed up on, but wouldn’t comment any further on suspects. He urged that the police are asking the citizens of the town of Manlius to contact the town of Manlius police at 682-2212 or to call the anonymous tip line at 682-TIPS if they see or hear anything suspicious.
