Another neighbor told her that when she heard about the incident, she noticed some of the pavers had been removed from the tree pit in front of another house - 53 #'s on 72nd St. There was some kind of red nylon bag left in the pit. Neighbors believe thieves may have spotted the pavers to use as "blocks" to hold up the vehicle and only had time to take one tire.
A friend of mine recently told me he spotted a vehicle on blocks in the vicinity of 51st Av but not sure if it was Winfield/Woodside or Elmhurst. Hope we'll hear more at our meeting on 11/5.
You might consider buying locks for your tires. These creeps move around to avoid getting caught. Your block might be next!
Please keep looking out your windows and call 911 if you spot suspicious activity!
