The latest report of various crime incidents in Hoboken, NJ…

Hoboken Police Blotter report 10/26/2010

3-pack of thugs roaming the streets

In two separate incidents, what appears to be the same group of three Hispanic street-thugs terrorized law-abiding citizens around town this month.

Just after midnight on Sunday Morning October 24, at 8th and Monroe (you know – a block from that Juliana Luxury Apartment Complex) a Jersey City man was hit in the face by one of three Hispanic men believed to be in their late 20’s. All wearing white “hoodies,” the men attempted to steal the victims wallet – but were unsuccessful and ran northbound on Monroe (probably towards the NJ Light Rail station at 9th Street.)

A similar incident took place on Sunday morning, October 10th – also after midnight. A Hoboken resident was approached by three Hispanic males who threatened to shoot the victim. Although they never produced a weapon, they searched the victims pockets and stole a cell phone, debit card and $80 bucks in cash. Again, the actors ran north towards 9th Street – but this time got into a “getaway vehicle,” described as a white van or SUV.

“Career Thief” finally nabbed

On Tuesday, October 21st – a Hoboken police officer noticed a male (Juan Gonzalez of Hoboken, NJ) in the back parking lot of Malibu Diner talking to employees about the bicycle he had on his person “was for sale.” The officer immediately recognized Gonzalez as a known burglary suspect – who had four warrants out for his arrest for theft of movable property.

The officer approached Gonzalez and asked for credentials – at which time the suspect became aggressive and fled the scene in order to avoid arrest. Officers were able to apprehend Gonzalez at 13th and Willow Avenue – but not after much resistance. Once handcuffed – Gonzalez began “cooperating” with officers. (411: Guess he had no other choice).

He had the following outstanding warrants (with total bail amounts of $80,000!)

  • Theft from The Turtle Club on August 17, 2010
  • Theft from parking garage at 1313 Park Ave on July 17, 2010
  • Another two thefts from the parking garage at 1313 Park Ave on August 7, 2010
  • A possible warrant from Boston, MA

The investigation is still ongoing in this case…

Like a broken record: Drunk Assaults

The “witching happy hour” in Hoboken is typically between midnight and the hour or two after bars close. In this instance, at approximately 3am on Saturday, October 23rd – Hoboken Police officers responded to the area of 5th and Washington on reports of a “large fight.”

Guys, girls, egos, and booze were the likely ingredients in this “recipe for stupid pie,” and four men sustained minor cuts and bruises as a result. Two men were Hoboken residents, one was from North Plainfield, and the other from North Brunswick. They were all in their mid-20’s.

Various assault and harassment charges and counter-charges were filed. No doubt plenty of Twitter and Facebook action documenting this “retarded and avoidable moment in Hoboken History” took place. Way to leave a mark in this world, guys!

Passed out drunks have stuff nicked

Here’s a good case for “designated baby sitters” in Hoboken. When I say that, I mean like a designated driver – someone in your group should always be the sensible one when you go out drinking.

A couple who lives near 6th and Garden Streets went out on the town on Sunday, October 24th and came home to quickly pass out (probably after making love to a few slices of 7 Stars Pizza). When the girl woke up around 4:30am Monday morning, she noticed the living room door was ajar.

The girl (in her early 20’s) woke the boyfriend up and he suspected that one of the other two roommates must have left the door open – and the noticed that an iPod and Docking Station had gone missing. The other roommates, who were also home – knew nothing about the missing gadgetry.

Imagine what else happens when you black out from excessive alcohol consumption?

@ nacholibre ,

While I appreciate you explaining the meaning of basic principle of triage, as a doctor that was on my way to the hospital to see patients , the 30 minutes I had to wait for someone to come and have the vehicle that was blocking my driveway was UNACCEPTABLE , as it delayed me by 30 minutes getting to the hospital . I think we can all agree that they takes priority over them eating their lunch ! However, like I said, thank you for teaching me the ” basic principle of triage. And actually my patients NEVER wait for me unless it is because I am still with another patient , it is NEVER because I am eating lunch …..

Does the hospital have a specific radius you must live within or response time to maintain? If so, instead of waiting for your car to be unblocked, there may have been more expedient ways to get to NYC. I suspect it was not a life and death emergency, otherwise, there are far better (and safer) options than some self-important doctor speeding through an urban area. If it was a busy weekend night, with multiple serious incidents getting dispatched should the police keep one officer in reserve at all times for people who really need to get to work? What if they are “only” a database administrator and they have a server crash? What if they are unemployed, is that an exception to the clock ticking? I am not saying I would want to wait 30 minutes either, but there is a bigger world out there than our own universe. Where and when cops eat lunch or how they patrol will not guarantee a 45 second response as there are too many variables on any given day (you can listen in via H411’s police scanner). When on the job, the last time I stopped a doctor for speeding, who was “called in on an emergency”, I asked what the nature of medical emergency was. He sheepishly replied it was a migraine, and hey, if it was me, I would appreciate his speedy response. “I didn’t spend six years in Evil Medical School to be called ‘mister’!” 😯 [quote comment=”199293″]@ nacholibre ,… Read more »

1. Unlike 95% of private sector workers, when the officers are on their lunch “break” they may still have to drop everything and handle an emergency. I cannot count the number of times I had to do that, or at a minimum, get asked for directions, etc. (which, hey, is part of the job, so no biggie). 2. Speaking of slackers 🙂 how many people in an office or other workplace literally work 100% of the time? Is it unacceptable for a police officer to make the same call to his doctor or child’s teacher that you do? Can a police officer get a laugh from a colleague’s joke or is it strictly business? 3. While 30 minutes may be “unacceptable” for a car to be towed, a Dr., of all people, should understand the basic principle of triage. If the police get calls for (1) a parking violation, (2) a burglarized auto, (3) a medical emergency, (4) domestic assault in progress, the call, logically, would not be handled in order of receipt. Cross the river to NYC and see if you wait 30 minutes or 30 days for an officer to handle a non-emergency call (some precincts are turning out only one car per shift). 4. While foot posts are a good policing tool, again consider a true emergency, and ask yourself why the entire NYPD isn’t on a foot post? The reason is, emergency and non-emergency calls require a fast response (remember, 30 minutes for a tow is… Read more »

All I am saying is that I want to see them get their fat asses out of the cars and walk on foot. I m NOT joking.. Yesterday at 012:15 I counted , 8 of them DOUBLED PARKED ILLEGALLY in front of the deli for lunch… 8 of them… The reason they dont walk foot routes is because half of them would drop dead because they weigh 300 pounds…. I am paying 13,000 a year in property taxes , so I WANT them to get their fat asses out of their cars and walk a foot route, like they do in many other cities… I dont expect them to prevent all crime , but I do expect to see them around and have them do their jobs. Last month, someone was doubled parked in front of my garage , I called the police to have the car towed and they showed up 30 minutes later .. 30 minutes ??? Are you kidding me ???? that is NOT acceptable.. Maybe if they were not all at the deli at the same times then someone would have been able to be sent to my home. PLUS, I am SICK and TIRED of seeing them talking on their cell phones while driving .. I get a ticket for it, they should too ! Our department needs a major overhaul !

……and I suppose your work place only allows two workers at a time to leave their cubicles for a lunch break. Get real.[quote comment=”199258″]All I am saying is that I want to see them get their fat asses out of the cars and walk on foot. I m NOT joking..

That seems to be a bit of a stretch comparing everyone leaving their office cubicle at the same time vs a large number of on duty police officers taking lunch at the same time. Unfortunately we cannot get crime to take a break at the same time these police officers are having lunch so it would be a good idea for the officers to split their lunch times up.

It’s not a stretch at all. Lunch break is a lunch break regardless of whether they spend it in one restaurant together or 8 different ones. I believe it’s you and nycmd who are stretching it.[quote comment=”199271″]That seems to be a bit of a stretch comparing everyone leaving their office cubicle at the same time vs a large number of on duty police officers taking lunch at the same time.

Ok, based on that lets get all doctors and nurses in hospitals to take their lunch break at the same time so no medical emergencies can be attended to for that hour. The issue is not where they spend their lunch break but when they are all taking it. Come on man, really?[quote comment=”199274″]It’s not a stretch at all.

What the hell is wrong with you? We’re talking EIGHT OFFICERS on a lunch break for christ sake NOT THE ENTIRE FORCE.[quote comment=”199278″]Ok, based on that lets get all doctors and nurses in hospitals to take their lunch break at the same time so no medical emergencies can be attended to for that hour.

If its taking a half hour to respond to calls then maybe 8 is too many. Proof is in the puddng…[quote comment=”199279″]What the hell is wrong with you? We’re talking EIGHT OFFICERS on a lunch break for christ sake NOT THE ENTIRE FORCE.[/quote]

What are you talking about? Don’t you see the four, legacy, payments watching the Path girls go by?
