- Comet was notified that last night or early this morning someone allegedly poured white paint on 4 parked cars on 54th Avenue between Seabury and Van Horn Streets in Elmhurst. We were told the police were called. If anyone finds damage such as this, please call the police like these folks did so the precinct can keep a record of where crime is occurring. Vandals tend to move around. Look out your window and if you see suspicious activity, call 911!
- Some folks in Elmhurst are finding snakes in their yards. These snakes are not poisonous and are very good for the environment. They like to eat mice too!! Just be aware of this when working in your yard.
- The rat problem on 74th/53rd Road - Council Member Crowley's office has notified the Health Department. We're waiting for a response from the agency.
- Graffiti swastikas were found in Maspeth a few weeks ago. A local newspaper showed a swastika graffitied on the railroad overpass at 48th Ave/69th St in Woodside in this week's paper. Please keep an eye out and report this activity!!
