“Oh no, we don’t lock our doors often,” said Allen Tobias, 67, who has lived in Brooklyn Heights since 1984. “You get used to a certain level of comfort and you don’t go back too easily. But I locked my door today. The burglaries were right around the corner.”
The Times mentioned the Remsen Street burglary featured in Tuesday’s blotter, as well as two subsequent burglaries on Willow Street. Another burglary turned out to be a messy apartment.
