Heard from Captain Manson, 104th Precinct, who said we had three crimes in our area:
- Sunday, 5/25, a truck was burglarized on 73rd Street/53rd Avenue between the hours of 6:00 pm and 9:00 am. An Apple Mac and multiple checks amounting to about $6,000 was stolen from glove compartment. (NOTE: commercial vehicles cannot park on residential streets between the hours of 9:00 pm and 5:00 am. Complaints can be called into 311.)
- Monday, 5/26, 71st Street/Grand Avenue, between hours of 11:30 pm and 7:30 am, unknown person(s) entered through rear door and stole two lap tops and two cell phones from vacant bedroom while residents were sleeping.
- Monday, 5/26, 63rd Street/Borden Avenue, a 2005 Lincoln Navigator was stolen between the hours of 8:00 pm and 10:00 pm. (NOTE: some vehicles are stolen for parts. It might be worthwhile to call the Crime Prevention Officer at your precinct and make an appointment to have your vehicle VIN Etched free of charge. This will deter car thieves because they can't sell a part with VIN # etched on it. If you have theft insurance, you might be eligible for a discount from your insurance company too.)
Heard from our VP who states a motorcycle was stolen out of a driveway on 72nd Street off Calamus Avenue at about 1:30 am yesterday. It was parked behind car in driveway.
Please stay alert and report anything suspicious to 911 immediately!!
