Lagrange, New York – October 25, 2021, the State Police in Poughkeepsie would like to remind members of the community to secure their vehicle properly.

Troopers are investigating the theft of two vehicles from this past weekend in Lagrange and East Fishkill.  Both cars were left unsecured in the homeowner’s driveway with the vehicle keys inside.
