Rise in vehicular crime in Hoboken?
Seems like the GPS thefts from cars is not relenting in Hoboken – with reports coming in from the streets AND parking garages of the Mile Square…
Bloomfield St. Parking Garage GPS theft string

“I thought I would let you know that there have been a string of car break-ins in the past week in the Garage at Observer and Bloomfield. My car has been broken into twice in the past week. Once last week and again today. Both times I had a GPS stolen, the first time off my dash and the second time out of my glove box along with a few small things out of my center console. I got my car back last night and it was broken into again that night.
After speaking with the lot supervisor apparently 6 cars were broken into over the past week in the same garage. I was at the police department today filing a report and a guy was there filing as well. His car was broken into last night too on Garden between Observer and Newark. He had a GPS stolen along with a bottle of wine. It was only Barefoot so everybody can hold back their gasp! Hopefully Hoboken’s finest get this guy, there are security cameras in my lot and I was told a detective would review the footage. Anyway I thought I would let your readers know to be extra careful in that area and make sure your GPS is out of sight!!”
Xmas Day break in

“I know you asked about more recent car break-ins, but my car was parked on Garden Street between 2nd and 3rd on the evening of 12/25. Someone smashed the passenger-side window and stole my GPS. I had stupidly left the GPS bracket up but hide the GPS in my consule. $300 to replace the window and the GPS was around $225.”
411 Advice: Remove all evidence of worthwhile items from your car! (Including brackets, etc.)!
