See message below from Captain Cody. Great job by the responding officers! Let's hope our burglaries, theft of hydrant caps, copper from poles, mirror thefts, etc. are reduced now that they're off the street.
Roe: Officer Wyatt and Officer Ricottone just had a good arrest.
Two males did climb over fence into a scrap metal yard located behind hotel at 59-40 55th Rd and remove tools and scrap metal.
Apparently a male staying at the holiday inn witnessed and did video with his phone the two males jump over the fence and remove the property.
Upon arrival Officer Ricottone and Hyatt continued to canvass and spotted both perps, one ran but they were able to get both.
Officer Ricottone did injure his leg and did go to Wyckoff hospital to get checked out for cut to leg and shortness of breath from 104 S/H.
