Vice President Dick Gundlach passed on the following information about a possible attempted burglary:
Time: approximately 9:30-9:40 am this morning, Thursday 10/26.
Location: 72nd Street between 51st and
Calamus Avenues, Woodside/Winfield
Two residents spotted an unfamiliar female Hispanic, 30-35 years old on her cell phone walking up and down 72nd Street SIX times. One of the residents on his way to work, who we believe was the target, heard her say in Spanish "second". At the time, the resident thought nothing about it. Soon after he got a call from ADT saying his alarm went off. He lives in the "second" house!
When he returned, the 108th Precinct had responded and found no sign of a break-in. However, this was very coincidental considering what the resident observed/heard prior to leaving.
The only other details Dick could get was that there was a male Hispanic sitting in a van nearby. No color of vehicle or description of male or female. This location is across the street from Maspeth/104th Precinct and just a couple of blocks from
Please folks, if something seems out of place, CALL 911. Let the police check it out. You won't get into trouble if you're wrong! Make sure that no one is watching you leave your house when going to work or the store.
Roe Daraio, President
