YONKERS – Police in Yonkers are investigating an alleged group of smash and grab thieves who targeted a jewelry store on Central Avenue in Yonkers and they think that group may be connected to a similar incident in a jurisdiction north of Yonkers.

A Westchester County Police unit observed two suspect vehicles in the area of Central Park Avenue and Mile Square Road and attempted to stop them. The vehicles fled: one crashed on Staunton Street.

Three suspects bailed on Staunton Street; Yonkers Police have one person of interest in custody. A search for the other two suspects is on-going.

The second vehicle that fled was apprehended in another jurisdiction with additional arrests.

Investigators from several agencies are collaborating to identify any outstanding perpetrators and bring appropriate charges.

Police said there are no threats to community safety at this time; however, residents are reminded to report any suspicious activity by calling 911.
