Oct. 15, 2020 By Michael Dorgan

Police are searching for a man who allegedly burglarized two apartment buildings in Kew Gardens earlier this week and made off with power tools.

Cops said the suspect first struck shortly after midnight Sunday when he broke into a residential building in the vicinity of Lefferts Boulevard and Metropolitan Avenue.

The perpetrator was captured on surveillance video entering the basement of the building and stealing power tools worth around $100 from a secured storage locker, police said.

He then fled the scene on foot in an unknown direction.

The suspect allegedly hit another residential building on Tuesday at around 2:30 a.m. and was again captured on tape.

Cops said the assailant went into the basement of a building in the vicinity of Talbot Street and 84th Avenue and took property from a storage locker before fleeing the scene on foot in an unknown direction. Police said the stolen property did not have any stated value.

Police describe the man as being between 40 and 50 years of age.

The NYPD released video footage of the suspect taken during the incident. The footage shows the man wearing glasses and a dark-colored hoodie.

Anyone with information in regard to the identity of this male is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM, or on Twitter @NYPDTips.

He looks 80-90

If that’s the person you say is the assailsnt. He also looks like he has dementia or Alzheimer’s or some sort of mental problem. And your proof is him entering a ridiculously easy area– through a double breasted plastic curtain. It doesn’t show him taking anything.


The article mentions they have surveillance video of him taking the power tools. I believe the video with this article is just a clip and not the full video.

Op-ed: An urgent call for revising NY’s criminal justice reforms to protect public safety

Apr. 11, 2024 By Council Member Robert Holden

In 2019, the State Legislature and Governor Andrew Cuomo embarked on a controversial overhaul of New York’s criminal justice system by enacting several laws, including cashless bail and sweeping changes to discovery laws. Simultaneously, the New York City Council passed laws that compounded these challenges, notably the elimination of punitive segregation in city jails and qualified immunity for police officers. These actions have collectively undermined public safety and constrained law enforcement effectiveness.
