Captain Manson, 104th Precinct, just called to let us know they made a great burglary arrest!
At about 12:15 pm today, 1/12, 66 #s on Jay Avenue, an Asian victim called 911 to report males attempting to kick her door off the hinges.
The 104th Precinct conducted a canvas and stopped two males. The victim was unable to identify them. Not to be thwarted, the 104th looked for cameras in the area and were able to positively determine that these were the perpetrators. They were taken to the 104th Precinct for processing.
You'll be surprised to hear that the perpetrators from Brooklyn are two male blacks aged 51 and 53-years old! One had a prior arrest for attempted murder and the other had a long record of burglaries and robberies. They were driving a white SUV.
As a result of the victim calling 911 immediately, these criminals are now off the street. The detectives will most likely look to see if they are connected to any other crimes in our area.
The second "good news" is that Captain Manson said that the 104th Precinct is #1 in the city with a 51% decrease in crime for the first 11 days in 2015.
Please don't assume that just because these crooks were arrested you don't have to be vigilant. There's always another criminal looking to take their place. Also, don't assume all burglars are young - as we just saw in this case.
We thank the officers in the 104th for a job well done!!
