Police are looking for a man who burglarized a supermarket in Woodside last month and made off with over $9,000 in cash.

On March 18, at around 10:15 p.m., the suspect was inside Key Food, located at 61-10 Queens Blvd., when he forced open the manager’s office door using a screwdriver, police said.

The suspect rummaged his way through the office and stole $9,127 in cash, police said.

The thief then fled the scene thorough the loading dock at the back of the store, according to police.

Police have released photographs and video surveillance of the alleged burglar.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).

@Cg..Google “Extreme shoplifting this morning at CVS on 53rd and Lexington…” and watch the video. I am sure more is taking place and people are too scared to do anything about it.

When people begin to run out of money and food they are going to start resorting to desperate acts. The real consequences of that is going in right now have yet to be seen .

Police cars should be stationed around markets and pharmacies. I saw an empty police car outside of a CVS on Ditmars, Astoria. Inside the store two female officers were spending time chatting with each other, laughing and buying make up. I am not against the police but it was odd seeing them do that with their uniforms on, police car parked outside while i was running around sweating with a winter scarf around my nose and mouth looking for face masks and gloves. Btw i did not find any.

Op-ed: An urgent call for revising NY’s criminal justice reforms to protect public safety

Apr. 11, 2024 By Council Member Robert Holden

In 2019, the State Legislature and Governor Andrew Cuomo embarked on a controversial overhaul of New York’s criminal justice system by enacting several laws, including cashless bail and sweeping changes to discovery laws. Simultaneously, the New York City Council passed laws that compounded these challenges, notably the elimination of punitive segregation in city jails and qualified immunity for police officers. These actions have collectively undermined public safety and constrained law enforcement effectiveness.
