PO Edwin Collado, our 104th Crime Prevention Officer, has been walking around Maspeth ringing doorbells and leaving burglary prevention fliers in doors, a copy of which is attached, to warn people to be careful. He is only one person and is doing his best to cover our neighborhood.
Captain Wachter will tell us where the burglaries are occurring at our meeting on Monday.
Many of the burglaries are occurring in homes where windows have been left open or where homeowners have not locked up their shed.
Burglaries can occur anywhere. A couple of the burglaries occurred near the Woodside/Winfield border and not too far from Elmhurst. We all need to keep our eyes open.
Please be alert and call 911 if you spot any suspicious activity!!
