84th Precinct Police Blotter – 6/19/13

A short and not-so-sweet blotter for the week.

Despite the warmer weather, there aren’t too many incidents to report. I’ll begin with the break-ins. One occurred June 6th on Pacific St, where a man returned home to find his $1,600 Dell laptop and $700 Toshiba laptop gone.

Another took place last Sunday at Hotel Indigo, where someone was caught on tape stealing an iPhone, Coach bag, and $120 cash.

There was also a robbery at TD Bank on Montague St, though not the kind you’d expect. An inventory of the laptops kept in their IT room revealed that seven are missing, to the tune of $7,027.

Two frightening muggings took place in the area last week. The first occurred last Thursday at approximately 3 am on Jay St. Two 20-year-old men were approached by a man with a knife who forced them to empty their pockets, then brought them to an ATM on Lawrence St., and had them withdraw a total of $160. Luckily, the perp was arrested.

The next took place last Sunday at Cadman Plaza and Clark St around 5 am. A 21-year-old girl was choked by a perp who stole her iPhone. He has not been caught, though the victim is reportedly alright.

A man parked his Harley-Davidson Nightster 1200 XL at Concord Village, and even though he had lock protection devices on it, the bike was stolen.

And finally, a man parked his car at 70 Washington St, only to return and find the passenger-side window broken and his wallet stolen from what the report called the “glove box.” You say glove box, I say glove compartment. And that’s this week’s blotter.

    any word on the 3 cops cars outside the mansion house at midnight on Sunday night?

    heard two guys were taken out in handcuffs?

  • HeatherQuinlan

    No word on that, it might make it into next week’s reports. I’ll ask when I’m there.

  • HeatherQuinlan

    Well, relatively speaking. Very shaken up, I imagine.

    A small point but one of my pet peeves as a former law enforcement officer. You said that there was a robbery at the TD Bank where some laptops are missing. Of course you probably meant a burglary. A robbery is when property is taken by force or the threat of force (muggings, stick-ups, etc,). If someone just steals unattended property it is a larceny. If someone breaks into your house or business and steals property it is a burglary All three are very different crimes, with different degrees of seriousness and different penalties.

    I know that many civilians use the word robbery to describe any theft but you ARE writing a Police Blotter post after all and I would imagine reporting the proper category of crime should be important.

    Other than that I enjoy your Police Blotter posts and appreciate the information.

    Thanks, Joe A. I knew it as I was typing, but typed “robbery” anyway. Probably the thought of “bank robbery” got in the way.

    I’d like to add that “perps” are low-lifes, while “Peeps” are delicious sugary treats.
