84th Precinct Police Blotter – 3/23/11

bugleblotter-300x1711 Lessons of the day: don’t lose your cool in family court; don’t invest in silver; and don’t cut in line at the Fulton St. Rite Aid. It’s this week’s blotter.

I am the first person to caution against cutting in line … in front of me! By nature yours truly is a mild-mannered type, but one lucky lady saw a different side when she cut in front of me at Han’s Market last month while I tried to get a tuna sandwich. (I love their tuna sandwiches. I don’t know what they put in them, don’t want to know, ignorance is bliss when it comes to tuna.) Suffice it to say, takedowns are a moveable feast.

A similar event happened at the Rite Aid on Fulton and Hanover Pl. last Tuesday, though instead of being taken down by a sharp tongue, the victim was taken down by a pink cell phone. According to the police report, a dispute over cutting in line took a turn for the worse when a 32-year-old woman was hit in the head with the phone. No word on who cut in front of whom, but the cell phone is still at large.

At Kings County Family Court on Wednesday, a 37-year-old man went berserk and hit three officers before being arrested.

A gang of about 10-15 thugs entered Joya on Friday night and proceeded to throw glasses wreack havoc about the place. One man was cut on the chin and hand before the pack left.

Finally, a 60-year-old woman wired $40,500 to a Leighton Peale of World Allied Advisors with instructions to invest it in precious metals. When she followed up, however, the victim was told Mr. Peale no longer worked there, and there was no record of her wire. Take it from me, it’s safer to bet on black.

Before I close, I want to say that I’ve just become the proud owner of a brand-new iPhone, so let’s see how long it takes before it gets snatched on the F line. I’ll set the over-under. And that’s this week’s blotter.

    That was unusual about the Joya incident. There must have been a ton of witnesses on a usually busy Friday evening.

    I hope the police finds those thugs.

    Two months.

    And I’ll take the under.

    I wonder if the Precious Metals Trading fraud victim responded to an email solicitation? She should have confirmed the safety of the deal BEFORE she wired the crooks her money. Lesson: Cross reference and double check independently before you act. Probably an oversees con operation.

  • Demonter

    …overseas con operation.

  • Eddy de Lectron

    Huuum… sounds like Joya hasn’t been keeping up with their payments…

    Demonter, How could anyone confirm if an email solicitation a safe deal when they’re all scams?

  • Demonter

    Smooth con artists are difficult to detect sometimes. The Long Con….

  • Eddy de Lectron

    The success of any con depends on the greed of the victim.

    There are some very questionable types in precious metal circles.
    The best insurance is to deal with precious metal firms which advertise in major publications. Also, call the atty gen office of the state the dealer is in and check for complaint history.

    But remember with ALL precious metal investing…the severe danger of legal restriiction or confiscatory taxation. Dont kid yourself, this IS a major consideration. I deal with precious metal
    advocates frequently and the smartest people I know hold gold,
    silver etc. But in the form of artwork. So the gold are INSERTS
    in say the handles and the artistic value ofthe piece is a certain
    percent above the value of the precious metal contained. This is going to be the most difficult to be seized or heavy taxed. The
    darlings in WDC are general very adversed to rub the wrong way the southerby crowd who are a central component of the control
    mechanism AND part of “wonderful” british influence here.

    So deal with someone you have properly checked out and think about objects of art.

    Heather, get a pink slip cover for your new phone. Then you can throw it at anyone that tries to steal it!

    Spoke to two friends in calif. their, and soon our, instruments
    are detecting more products of the japan disaster….wish some
    good foundation would underwrite the deployment of good detection equip to independent monitors. We really need
    a network of observers not tied to any govt or financial interests
    to give a real time true readings of what is ACTUIALLY occuring.

    I look at the police car in the graphic above and I think…

    “there a holdup in the Bronx, Brooklyn broken out in fights,
    there a traffic jam in Harlem that’s backed up to Jackson Heights..”

    “There’s a scout troop lost a child…”

    @TK Already done!

    Also, I’m investing in zinc, if anyone would like to give me their money. My company will be called Zonc Inc. (Zinc Inc was taken.)

    Heather as I’m sure you know, there is entire NON precious metal investment movement which has surged in the last 3 years. Driven to a certian extent by taxation/confiscation fears. But also on the bais of projections on China/india’s need/use of metals basic to technology.

    But this field of investing is also as sensitive as futures. Research where the companies mines are, the track record of the geology
    team and the government policies the source mines are under.

    Liz taylor had some metal mining stock when she was with my uncle’s firm 20 yrs ago…

    Think Zinc!
