Reader Mail: Recent Burglary
Here’s a Hoboken411 reader who was recently robbed during the day over on Adams Street. In addition to losing the usual high-priced electronics, he lost a treasured piece of jewelry.
Don’t let this happen to you!
“I read Hoboken411 quite frequently and thought I’d share what recently happened to me.
I live on Second and Adams and last week I got home from work around 7:30pm and noticed the door to my apartment was unlocked and looked severely damaged (there have been quite a few problems lately with the “secure” door, not locking all the way).The deadbolt did not work as well as the regular lock and it looked as if someone took a crowbar to my door.
At first I saw my TV was in place so I didn’t think anything was missing when the cops first got there. When the locksmith arrived shortly after I went into my bedroom and noticed that things were scattered everywhere, and several items were missing including, my video camera, digital camera, ipod and speakers, 2 watches, dvd players, several other items, and most importantly, a necklace that was given to me that belonged to my deceased father.
I am upset about everything that has happened, but the necklace was the most personal thing I owned. It was a thin 14K gold necklace with T and four diamonds inside the T. I know the readers of this site are very helpful and I am hoping that you can pass this along if anyone notices or comes across this necklace to please let me know.
I also want to inform Hoboken411 readers to be more cautious of their own apartments and to please get renters insurance (which I was in the midst of doing). If anyone has any tips about the missing necklace matching that description, please email Hoboken411.”
