Hoboken burglaries on the rise!
In addition to hearing a noticeable increase in “Cold B&E’s” (breaking and entering – i.e., burglaries) on the Hoboken411 Live Police and Fire Action Channel – one Hoboken411 reader (John Tuttle) has something to add:
Be alert, for god’s sake!
Within the past few weeks there have been a number of burglaries north of 9th street and between Hudson and Park.
The most recent one was today between the times of 11am and 1pm on Garden St. If anyone has seen any suspicious activity within this area or know of who the culprits are please let us know.
A Concerned Hudson County Committeeman!”
Based on what John said, I think it’s time for us to collectively start becoming more AWARE of what’s going on in our neighborhoods.
Keep in mind with the “suffering” economy, crime will undoubtedly increase. Unless, of course, we do something about it. So whether you’re unemployed, or have the day off – keep your eyes open, and report ANYTHING that looks suspicious. (Think: “Better safe than sorry,” or “That’s what the police are for, right?”)
That, of course, depends on whether or not you’re aware of your surroundings, neighborhood and what “normal circumstances” are. If you’re obsessed with your phone or iPod – then perhaps you’re next on the list of victims. WAKE UP!!
