We were told folks saw police activity in the vicinity of Manila Street/Kneeland Avenue yesterday, Monday, 1/12, at about 8:30 am. See PO Saponieri's, 110th Precinct Community Affairs, response below. Please pass his message on to others in the area!
This perpetrator could be one of the two men arrested by the 104th Precinct yesterday trying to break into a home on Jay Avenue in Maspeth around noontime. One of the men was charged with the recent burglary on Codwise Place in Elmhurst.
On the other hand, this burglary may not be related so it's important you all stay alert!!
