It’s not just the north side of Queens Blvd that is being targeted by burglars.
On Feb. 19, one apartment building located on 43rd Street (by 47th Ave.) was struck twice—with two separate units being hit. In both incidents, laptops were taken, according to police.
The police said the first incident occurred at 8:00 am when an unknown suspect broke through the front of a second floor apartment and took off with a MacBook among other items.
The victim of the second incident, which was reported at 1:30 pm, discovered that she had been burglarized the hard way.
She arrived home and noticed police activity relating to the burglar of the second floor tenant. She then walked into her apartment and found that she had been ransacked.
“They probably used a crowbar to get into my apartment,” the woman wrote in an e-mail. “The whole wooden beam of the door was smashed.”
The woman said her laptop and charger was stolen as well as a giant ball of knotted necklaces. She said that it was inexpensive and poked fun at the thief: “haha! good luck trying to untangle that!” she said in an e-mail.
The victim said she wanted people to keep their eyes open for burglars. “[This} is a beautiful town and it’s our job to support each other,” she wrote.
