We heard overnight from J-P, who wrote:

Unfortunately, the rash of burglaries continues. Today, burglars have hit Northeast 80th Street and Fourth Avenue  Northeast between noon and 3 p.m. They’ve followed a similar modus operandi to that your article describes and pillaged all my friend’s electronics, silverware, and jewelry.

J-P says that the victim noticed two black males across the street apparently working under a car hood. “That caught the victim’s attention because they had never been seen in the neighborhood before.” Our previous post stated neighbors believed the suspects could be two black men taking jewelry and electronics.

This new burglary has not yet shown up on the police crime map. “Tip of the hat to the police for arriving at the victim’s place in a record three minutes following the call to 911,” J-P writes.

“Feel free to relay that information so as to raise awareness in the neighborhood and get burglars locked up and their ‘booty’ returned to their owners.”
