Hudson St. cars hit with GPS theft spree
Several cars have GPS units nicked; HPD has potential suspects
Late this afternoon, a NJ Transit employee notified Hoboken Police that he had noticed throughout his several trips in and out of the city today, that he saw a suspicious group of men methodically making their way uptown (along the east side between Washington & Hudson). He told HPD that it seemed like they were “checking out vehicles.”
Based on that loose lead – Hoboken Police & Vice Squad began investigating the areas in question – and found that several vehicles had their GPS units stolen along Hudson Street. It appears that the thieves either checked for unlocked doors, or simply “popped” the door lock cylinders out. Hoboken Police also stopped two men on 7th Street who had five GPS units in their possession.
When will people learn how to prevent this easy crime for criminals which does nothing but cause trouble for you?
