Daylight robbery caught on video
[Reminiscing Hoboken411’s Five Year Anniversary…]
Video Flashback 2007: Brazen Robbery
The video below was submitted to Hoboken411, which showed how robbery & theft can be just steps away – even during a quiet mid-week afternoon.
You’d think that as technology gets faster & less expensive, that more video would be provided to have the community help identify these criminals. But it seems like we’re going backwards these days.
Hoboken Robbery Caught on Video – in broad daylight!

Recognize these two thieving thugs? If so, it could be worth $500 if you can get the stolen laptop back.
In the early afternoon today over at Monroe Street between 2nd and 3rd, two suspects were filmed entering a home that was having work done on it. Little did they know that the contractor was inside. They got away with a laptop and appeared to be scoping that circular saw that was in the front as well.
This serves as a reminder that you can be robbed at any time! Richard (who provided the raw video footage) wrote:
“About 45 minutes ago two guys tried to steal a chop saw outside my job site at 2nd and Monroe. While scouting it out one went inside and snagged a laptop which I was using. Called the cops three times and before they came. One of the detectives from Hoboken PD came out and said he knew them so I keep hope that they will get them.
Not sure if the typical Hoboken reader is in the right circle that knows these thugs but if anything it brings to light that a break-in like this can happen in a minute. Sure I had the door open but my guys were maybe 20 feet away. No different then someone propping the door open to unload groceries.”
