Recent Robberies

hoboken-burglaries-august-2007.jpgI’ve heard of a couple of recent break-ins around Hoboken as of late. Seems like these petty thieves like to take smaller items they can easily stow away.

Here’s what one reader said earlier this week:

“My apt on 200 Grand Street was broken in to this week while I was at work (between 7:30am -6pm). The main door to the building was unlocked (itโ€™s normally locked) and they broke down the second entrance door to my apt that is locked by a dead bolt. Items were taken included 2 watches, a dewalt cordless drill, sunglasses, and a sandisk mp3. From what I hear, there have been several break-ins in hoboken during the day and the thieves are taking small items they can easily put into a backpack like mp3, ipods, laptops, and jewelry.”

If anything, you may want to keep your more expensive items in a not-so-plainly-visible location.. like in a drawer or up on a shelf somewhere.. At least make it harder for someone to pilfer.

[quote comment=”38694″][quote comment=”38685″]My paternal grandparents are legal immigrants. In fact, my grandfather had so much waiting time in the old country that he missed the birth of his first child (my dad) by 2 months. They did it legally.

MR-Shepherds are great dogs, but they can be lethal. My sister had the misfortune of petting one when it had an ear infection- 37 stitches later, her face was put back on (she was 3). Could have been any dog, I don’t blame the Shepherd, but I do respect them and their ability to tear up a person. :mrgreen:[/quote]

Given your profession, I’m shocked you’re not asking what the settlement was.

Not too get off topic, but a-she was being babysat at a home that had no dogs, but the sitter (50ish) lived next door and brought her gentle giant over… she didn’t know the dog had an ear infection and b-we grew up with big dogs, we had no fear of them (and a lack of respect for their power until that day). My parents always stressed being careful, but she knew the dog, and like I said, it had an ear infection, it was NOT a mean dog. Accidents happen. ๐Ÿ™„
