Car Break-in Alert on Poplar

A tipster just wrote: “This morning walking my dog I saw that three cars parked next to the Community Garden at the corner of Hicks/Poplar/Willow had side windows broken into … on the curbside of course!”
A visit to the scene of the crime revealed shards of glass all over the ground and one busted-in car remaining, with a towel covering the broken window. Could this be the work of the infamous DUMBO smasher, reportedly now back on the streets?

    Never park your car over there, it’s a thief magnet.

    I have parked in that same spot MANY times. Ugh.

    We park the Homermobile there all the time. Lucky for us I’m lazy and haven’t gotten the car out of the parking garage since Tuesday ….

    Yeah, I live directly across the street – its a spooky little corner.
