Just as we all took a sigh of relief after the apprehension of a burglar last night, Captain Manson, 104th Precinct, just called to let us know a burglar(s) broke into a two-family house at 52 #s on 66th Street this afternoon, 12/11, between the hours of 4:30 pm and 7:30 pm.
The perpetrator broke through the REAR door of the building, which the officers described as being "flimsy" (not strong). Once inside, both apartments were ransacked and valuables were stolen. The perpetrator exited through the front door.
This location is only a couple of blocks from Winfield/Woodside in the 108th Precinct. We're asking everyone to be on the lookout since this burglary spree obviously isn't over and the perpetrator may move around to a different area.
Don't forget our precincts offer free security surveys. You can call and leave a message for your Crime Prevention Officer. He/she will return your call and visit you when you are available. You'll be given cost-effective tips on how to secure your home. You can call the switchboard and will be connected to Crime Prevention.
