Hoboken crime and fire action: January 26, 2011
Some afternoon incidents, crimes and fire-calls throughout the day for Wednesday, January 26, 2011. This post may get updated and “bumped” periodically.
- 11:59pm: Auto Fire
1500 Clinton Street – Car on Fire.
- 9:30pm: Auto Accident
Minor accident at 15th and Jefferson – no injuries reported.
- 9:00pm: Drunk middle aged man at train station
HPD being called to the Lackawanna Train Station (“Track #1”) for a 56 year-old intoxicated male. They didn’t specify why, but he’s either stumbling and fumbling, or griping about where he went wrong in his life…
- 4:40pm: Destructive kids now!
Reports of kids on the 4th floor of the parking garage adjacent to Hoboken University Medical Center throwing snowballs, broke a window in a nearby building. “It’s all fun and games till someone gets hurt…”
- 1:00pm: Kids will be kids
Reports of “a group of kids throwing snowballs near the McDonald’s” at Third and Washington. What is this, a new game? Homeless beggar target practice?
- 12:15pm: CVS Shoplifter
The Downtown CVS called Hoboken PD – reports of a shoplifter in the store. Wonder if he was enticed by the Prescription Drug Savings Scam?
- 11:37am: Mom, get your sh*t together!
A Hoboken mom called HPD saying she locked her baby in her car near 4th and Willow. They’re sending a tow truck to help jimmy the car open. That’s an idea for Hertz Corner Cars: “Auto baby eject!”
- 11:30am: City botches practically everything
A Hoboken Police officer reported that his patrol car was “clipped” by a Hoboken salt truck near Police Headquarters at 120 Hudson Street. Minor damage, but still! Maybe the city needs discount eyeglass cards – out of necessity, not kickbacks!
- 11:10am: Truck bullies cables
On First Street between Court and Hudson Streets, reports of a truck that knocked a bunch of cable wires down, hanging low now. That sucks. Hope you have DirecTV if you want to watch your soaps!
- 10:57am: Emergency Snow Routes now active
The Hoboken Police will be making their “announcements” through their vehicle’s PA systems – that the Hoboken Snow Emergency Routes are now in effect, and residents should move their cars.
- 10:50am: Creepy Fire Escape
A resident who lives at 720 Washington Street reported that a man (light-skinned Hispanic) was on his fire escape. The man claimed to be from Cablevision – but refused to produce credentials to the resident. The HPD called Cablevision – who said “no jobs are scheduled at that location today.” The man took off in an un-marked pickup truck with no logo.
- 10:00am: “Let it begin”
The first of many slippery car accidents took place at 15th and Park. No injuries reported.
