See message below from Captain Cody. Great job by the responding officers! Let's hope our burglaries, theft of hydrant caps, copper from poles, mirror thefts, etc. are reduced now that they're off the street.
Roe: Officer Wyatt and Officer Ricottone just had a good arrest.
Two males did climb over fence into a scrap metal yard located behind hotel at 59-40 55th Rd and remove tools and scrap metal.
Apparently a male staying at the holiday inn witnessed and did video with his phone the two males jump over the fence and remove the property.
Upon arrival Officer Ricottone and Hyatt continued to canvass and spotted both perps, one ran but they were able to get both.
Officer Ricottone did injure his leg and did go to Wyckoff hospital to get checked out for cut to leg and shortness of breath from 104 S/H.

COMET President Roe Daraio and WPIX's Greg Mocker confront the owner of a livery car operation that uses Woodside streets as a parking lot.
Just heard from a member that yesterday they stole all the wheels on an Escalade on 66 street and Jay Ave left it sitting on cinder blocks. The victim may not have reported it. See Captain Cody's response. Please pass this on to friends/family. If you hear or see anything, call 911. If you are a victim, please file a report!!!
I have no record of a tire/rim from an Escalade at Jay Avenue
There is however one for an Escalade occurring on Juniper Boulevard South
I will ask my staff to follow up on the incident: if you get further in regards a report can be filed
Also if I may could I ask you to put out a Comet Alert regarding the return of tire/rim thefts as we have had 4 this week
I was at a civic in Ridgewood Thursday night and a citizen heard the sound of power tools on her block late at night and later discovered her neighbor lost his rims!
Please stress the timely call to 911 especially late at night!
And unfortunately I will not be able to make Monday's meeting as I have an early morning tour as well as preparation for an upcoming Compstat Meeting at One Police Plaza
Captain T will attend and if my schedule changes I will be there also-i really enjoy the meeting and feel bad about not being there-so if I can pop in I will but also a lot on my plate this upcoming week
