From the Queens Chronicle:
About 10 residents of the two buildings at 47-39 and 47-25 40 Ave. appealed to police and elected officials at a 108th Precinct Community Council meeting on Sept. 27. There have been seven reported incidents in the rear apartments of the buildings that police believe are linked to one particular burglar.
Police are baffled and said that they haven’t been able to turn up a suspect because he or she left few clues to work from. Still, those who live in the buildings demand something be done.
