Please keep an eye out for the following regardless of where you live in the 104th, 108th, 110th Precinct areas. These are not isolated incidents!! If you see anything suspicious, call 911 immediately. At 3:45 am this morning, Monday, 2/22, my neighbor spotted two males walking down 70th Street/53rd Avenue (104th Precinct) and heading towards Calamas Avenue which is the beginning of Woodside (108th Precinct). The two males, who were wearing hoodies, were walking in the middle of the street trying car doors - most likely looking for cash, GPS's or other valuables. My neighbor called 911. A few minutes later 911 called back saying they sent units to the area and were looking for a physical description. Unfortunately, that's the only information my neighbor could provide in the few seconds that he saw them. Since the 108th Precinct begins a couple of blocks from this location and are not on the same police frequency as the 104th, it's likely these males were in the 108th Precinct by the time the 104th responded. That's one of the problems we have living on a precinct border. Please make sure your car doors are locked and you don't leave valuables behind!!! We were told at our last Comet meeting that we are continuing to have a problem with burglaries. The burglar(s) is entering through the side or rear of homes - and occurred even with the heavy snow piled up. Crime doesn't take a holiday! Lastly, if you have expensive rims on your car or have a new car, consider putting on wheel locks. People are coming out in the morning to find their tires gone. Please pass this on to others. The more people looking out the better chance we have of catching these creeps before they escalate as the weather gets warmer.
