BROOKLYN - Police are stepping up patrols in Fort Greene after more than a dozen vehicles were recently vandalized.

According to Councilwoman Letitia James, there have been at least 16 car break-ins in the past few weeks. Residents say they've had radios stolen and windows broken, mostly while parked next to Commodore Barry Park.

James says the area is desolate and is calling for more lighting around the park. Officials at the 88th Precinct say they are working on adding lights and combating the recent crime wave.
