March 11, 2009 THE VILLADOM TIMES I • Page 5 Wyckoff Wyckoff Police Chief John Ydo has asked township residents to be the eyes and ears of their neighborhoods in response to the activities of organized groups of burglars. “Burglars have become more sophisticated,” Chief Ydo said. “They prefer to use fast, expensive cars, they tend to dress neatly, and they appear to fit into the areas they are casing. A burglar may ring a doorbell to see if someone is home. If you answer the door, the person will act lost, or Police chief: Be on the lookout for burglars ask for a non-existent person or address. Even if your home is fitted with alarms, burglars tend to target the master bedroom and can be in and out of a home in a matter of minutes.” The chief noted that burglars will sometimes pose as utility workers or delivery persons. “All utility employees will have proper identification and will not be offended if you ask to see their credentials,” Elizabeth DeGregorio and Carl Anello, both newcomers, will run uncontested for election to Wyckoff’s K-8 Wyckoff BOE election uncontested Board of Education. Christine Roche and JoAnne Zellers opted not to seek reelection this year. Chief Ydo said. He urged residents, however, to be wary of unscheduled visits by utility workers, or of delivery persons who show up with unexpected packages. “Burglars have, on occasion, worked for legitimate delivery or service businesses and used that to target homes for a burglary at a later date,” Chief Ydo said. “Residents should be alert for any person who has access to your home and is able to observe valuables, storage cabinets, and safes.” The chief also urged residents to use timers for lights that snap on at dusk and off at dawn and to make houses seem occupied by leaving radios playing when no one is home. Consider asking trusted friends to pick up mail, newspapers, and objects left by delivery personnel.
