Captain Mackie, 104th Precinct Executive Officer, wants to let us know that four individuals were arrested last night for Criminal Trespass in Maspeth.
He said that last night at 11:25 pm 104th Precinct units responded to a "10-30 (Robbery in Progress)" of a residence at 54 #s on 63rd Place. Upon their arrival, a nearby neighbor reported seeing a possible break-in at the unoccupied residence. Responding officers saw movement through a window in the garage and apprehended four (4) individuals (1 male/25, 1 male/24, 1 female/20 and 1 female/juvenile) from the garage.
The four individuals, who are from our area, were found in possession of a small amount of marijuana and were charged with Criminal Trespass and Unlawful Possession of Marijuana.
There were no signs of forced entry. He said it is a newly renovated home that is presently unoccupied. They were not able to find the owner at the location.
We want to thank the 104th for their quick response and especially the neighbor who saw something and called 911!
Reminder - be alert and call 911 if you see anything suspicious. Now that warm weather is finally arriving, burglars will be looking for a target. Keep your doors, windows and sheds locked at all times. Don't leave bicycles, lawn mowers or other tools outside unattended.
If you see something, say something - you will not get into trouble if you are mistaken!
