Car Burglaries At Trailheads In Keene/Keene Valley Area – posted by Peter
It has been reported that there is a serial burglar targeting cars parked at trailheads in the Keene/Keene Valley area, including the Garden parking lot. The DEC and state police are working together to investigate and will issue a notice sometime within the next week or two. At this point, the burglar seems primarily interested in hiking gear and has been smashing windows to get inside. Regardless of whether you are parked at one of the affected trailhead parking lots it is good practice to cover all valuables while enjoying your outing to minimize the potential for these “smash and grab” break-ins.
