Some year-end Queens crime reports

From the NY Post:

Police are hunting for the boyfriend of a Corona woman found stabbed to death in her apartment.

The sister of Diana Bolivar, 29, grew concerned after she was unable to reach her for nearly a week, and called police.

Police met the sister outside the victim's apartment on 110th Street near 34th Avenue at around noon on Tuesday. They forced the door open and found a mutilated Bolivar on the bed, sources said.

She had been stabbed numerous times.

The victim had a stormy relationship with her boyfriend, who was still being sought for questioning yesterday, police said.

(This one's believed to have left the country...perhaps because the NYPD failed to make a timely report.)


A South Jamaica woman who was delinquent on her utility bills swung a baseball bat at uniformed Con Edison workers who came to shut off service at her home, cops said.

The workers, a man and a woman, arrived at the home of Monica Plazaluna, 24, on 120th Avenue near 153rd Street on Dec. 14 at 10:45 a.m.

When they informed Plazaluna that they were cutting her service, she allegedly tried to punch the female employee.

The male worker jumped in front of Plazaluna, and she retreated back to her residence. But she came back out swinging a Louisville Slugger, cops said.

She was arrested on charges of menacing and criminal possession of a weapon, said a spokesperson for DA Richard Brown.


An ambulette with a drunken driver behind the wheel jumped a curb in Rego Park, cops said.

Georgy Petrenko, 48, was driving the 2001 Ford van near the southwest corner of 98th Street and 63rd Drive at 10:57 p.m. on Dec. 13. He drove the vehicle over the curb, leaving it halfway on the sidewalk, police said.

An undercover cop saw Petrenko exit the vehicle with blood gushing from his forehead, and reeking of booze, authorities said.

Petrenko, who blew a .21 on a Breathalyzer, was arrested and charged with driving under the influence and aggravated driving.


Cops responding to a dispute in a Forest Hills apartment recovered a shotgun and arrested the occupant, police said.

Officers responded to a 911 call at 104-20 Queens Blvd. near 69th Avenue at 6:45 p.m. on Dec. 17 and found a belligerent John Lastorino, 55, with a gun case, cops said.

"F - - - them. I was done. I was going to take care of them," a raging Lastorino told cops.

They recovered a shotgun from the apartment's supply room, and Lastorino was arrested and charged with criminal possession of a weapon, according to the DA's spokesperson.

The NYPD are morons. I'm surprised they made a report at all. When i was the victim of a crime they believed the perp and refused to fill out a report. They are stupid beyond stupid.

From my dealings with the NYPD especially in the Bayside/Flushing neighborhood - all they do is harass little kids for having magic markers (school required) in their book bags - believe it or not they arrest these kids for graphity implements. Sitting around and eating donuts are what they are best at doing.

The so called "shotgun" was not only an antique, it was completely disassembled and useless. Charges were completely dismissed at a later date.

I was arrested and dragged out of my apartment at the same location for a cigarette lighter that was a replica of a German Luger that someone reported seeing me use on my terrace a couple of years ago. What's next? Water guns?

You can already be arrested for a water gun if it looks like a real gun.
