“We thwarted an attempted car theft from my driveway in Ridgewood near the same area the next night, Thursday the 11th. They came by about at 3am. Ridgewood police say it is an organized group with workers getting dropped off in neighborhoods to find cars. While locking will help, that is not all there is to it. They have technology and can sometimes unlock locked cars (think of your universal remote) and also they have successfully made duplicate keys for cars they find and want then come back later. So those of you that are posting smugly with no sympathy for your neighbors that have been victims might be surprised if you could be a victim too someday. Even more upsetting is that if we catch they guys like in the videos, they are just the punks recruited from Paterson or Newark. But the car theft business will continue on with new recruits.”
“This is beyond look at Police Department work. This is extremely on the cover federal. They are stealing high-end cars and exporting them out of the country. This is not the typical kid taking the car for a joyride. Or fashion shop shops. This is big time big money very organized. This has been going on for a few years in our area.The old days they broke your window, I want to use the old fashions SlimJim That’s over”

Ridgewood NJ, this is being reported on many Ridgewood related Facebook pages, “One of my neighbors asked me to share this news. Their car was stolen last night from their driveway on Woodside Avenue. The car was parked around 9:40 pm last night near their garage. The end of their driveway was blocked by their other car. The car was not locked but the key was not inside. Somehow the thief was able to start the car and reverse it over their front yard since the driveway was blocked.
