There's something "unusual" about the theft Thursday of an unlocked 2013 Porsche from one Franklin Lakes driveway, according to borough police.
Sometime between 3:20 and 3:45 p.m. Thursday afternoon, a black Porsche SUV was stolen from the driveway of an Apple Ridge Road home, Franklin Lakes Police Lt. John Bakelaar said in a release Friday morning.
The car was unlocked and the keys were left inside it, police said.
“This [theft] is unusual because [the car] was taken during the daytime,” Bakelaar said.
And, the homeowners were at home at the time of the theft, police said.
A rash of unlocked car thefts that hit the Franklin Lakes-Wyckoff area last year usually happened overnight, Bakelaar said.
This theft comes on the heels of a warning from the Wyckoff Police Department reminding residents to lock their car doors. The public service announcement was prompted by a string of similar thefts in other Bergen County towns, police said.
