Another day in the neighborhood
Not sure if it was the time change, cooler weather, or lack of baseball playoffs – but we had a relatively quiet weekend in Hoboken!
Hoboken Police Blotter report: 11/8/2010
1. Single? Change your locks often! (or you might get bitten)
On November 6th, a man living near 8th and Monroe Streets was surprised when his ex-girlfriend let herself into his apartment while he was “gettin’ jiggy with” a new girl. A verbal and physical altercation ensued, and the angry-ex punched the man in the forehead and bit him on the chest. She fled the scene, but in the heat of the moment left her keys and cell phone behind. When she returned for her belongings, police arrested her and charged her with simple assault. The man didn’t file charges, nor did he want a restraining order.
Maybe he likes it?
2. Thieves need bike racks for stolen bikes too
A man living near Park & 2nd Streets woke up Sunday, November 7th to realize that his Thule Bike rack (valued at approximately $400) was nicked from his Subaru. Minor damage to the roof of the car was reported as well.
3. Hair important enough to steal and go to jail for
On Friday, November 5th – Hoboken Police were summoned to the ShopRite supermarket at 9th and Madison for a shoplifter being held. The man had attempted to steal 10 bottles of “BioSilk Hair Therapy” product.
Additionally, he had seven outstanding arrest warrants from Hoboken, Elizabeth, North Bergen, Jersey City, Fairview and Clifton. Way to go!
4. Doesn’t matter how nice the car is
A Hoboken woman was upset to learn that her 1994 Toyota Corolla had gone missing from the area of 4th and Marshall Drive on November 6th. Hoboken Police searched the area as well as called Mile Square Towing with negative results. A stolen car report was filed.
5. Drunk Stevens kids & their friend give cops workout
Last night, a Hoboken Police Officer noticed three men acting disruptive near 4th and Washington Streets – yelling at the Cali Carting “refuse technicians,” banging on the window of Wise Vision – and generally being “loco” (were they drinking that crazy juice Four Loko?)
The officer approached the males, advising them to stop their disorderly behavior – instead the three ran away saying “F*ck you, you can’t catch us anyway!”
After a brief foot pursuit towards Stevens Institute – and with help of Stevens Police, the three men were apprehended near 6th and River Terrace. The two Stevens students were 21 years old and the other actor (from Denver, CO) was 20 years old, and in possession of an identification card of an older man “he didn’t know how that ID got in his pocket.”
All three were charged with Disorderly Conduct and Obstruction of Law and released.
