Multiple car burglaries

a 6′ tall hispanic male wearing shorts and driving either a white van or white “Jeep”, was reported to have been witnessed in the act of two separate thefts from vehicles this morning.

1. on 4th and Adams, a witness reported seeing the male get out of this van, proceed to smash another van, gain entrance, and remove various items. The van belonged to a security company, and it appears a GPS unit and other items were removed.

2. A teacher from the Brandt School flagged down an officer indicating he witnessed a similar male break into his car at 1002 Park Ave, and reported some “electronic items” missing from his vehicle too.

What about the security at Hoboken city hall? Two gadflys arrested for refusing to sign in at the main lobby desk which is not manned from 8 to 9 am when the court is in session…yes, when real lawbreakers are in the building. Also, all day, all one has to do to gain access is to go in the Newark St. entrance and use the elevator or interior stairs to have free access with no signing in. This is another indication of the way the city operates. All smoke and mirrors with now idea of how to manage a city budget and to provide professional services in a cost-effective manner. Time for change. :mrgreen:

Use common sense and lessen the opportunity by putting things away and locking your car 💡

Either they lack common sense, observation skills, or inductive reasoning ability. Or maybe common sense just sums it up.

But it reminds me of the adage: “life is cruel and random and dishes out lessons we need to learn.”

When I had a removable face plate radio removed from my car (w/o the faceplate) in a “locked” garage in the mid-90s, I had my moment of clarity. If it’s not nailed down it WILL get stolen in a city infested with roaming thieves.

Most thieves are low-IQ crack-head types. But others coordinate and strategize. For example, don’t think that cab driver taking you to EWR is above giving your travel plans to is buddy the house thief – or to his kids the car burglars who know which stall in the locked garage is yours.

Sorry to those muttering “noshitsherlock” while reading this.

This is a great way to not have this happen to you.

DON’T KEEP YOUR LAPTOP GPS,CELLPHONE,MONEY ETC.OUT SO EVERY

CRACK HEAD CAN SEE THEM AND STEAL THEM AT WILL.

A little common sense goes a LONG WAY.
