Just found out from a Comet member (very reliable source) that another burglary occurred at 70 #s on 52nd Avenue overnight/early morning hours today while the family was sleeping!!
Entry was made through rear door, TV, electronics, jewelry taken. Perpetrators only stayed on first floor. Crime was reported to 104th today when family woke up and found items missing.
I reached out to Captain Manson, 104th Precinct. He has not yet seen the report so we don't know if rear door was broken into or if it was left unlocked. At this point, this burglary is unconfirmed. If and when I hear more, I'll let everyone know.
Folks, this is VERY serious! When perpetrators go into a home when they know there's a good chance the family is there - they are not afraid to confront them. Please remain vigilant and if you hear a noise downstairs, DO NOT investigate - call 911 immediately. Tell the operator we've had some night burglaries and you fear someone is entering your home. You will NOT get in trouble if it turns out to be nothing. Better safe than sorry!! All of our precincts are aware of what's going on.
If these burglars took a TV and electronics, they must have a vehicle. That means they can hit a home anywhere. Regardless of where you live, please take this seriously and pass this along to others!!
Btw, we're still up in the air about our meeting tomorrow. Will let you know decision.
