A Ferncliff Road couple scared off would-be thieves who were attempting to steal their $3,000 generator on Saturday.
According to the Scarsdale Police report, the wife heard a vehicle idling in front of their home. She looked outside and noticed a sedan and an SUV and two men "on her front lawn attempting to remove her generator."
The couple opened their front door, scaring off the thieves, who fled in their vehicles toward the Edgewood School, according to police.
Police said the generator, keeping their home powered up post-Hurricane Sandy, was on the front lawn and close to the road. Police advised the residents to move the generator a bit closer to their home.
Police searched for the crooks to no avail.
