Could this be connected to the newly permissive attitude toward heroin addiction, and the "NARCAN shield"?

How come Nassau County police Dept. reports this but Malverne does not? We had cars broken into about two weeks ago and it was kept hushed up.

I don't believe I saw 1st ave in Massapequa park on that list but that was also a target. The police found 2 young people with the valuables . This is very common in Heroin use all this petty robbery so as the heroin use on LI continues do will these type of incidents and of course the tragic OD

"Thieves Continue Targeting Unlocked Cars". That why you lock your car and keep valuables out of sight.
