Van Bramer's house burgled
"Friday, between 4pm and early Saturday am, there was a break-in at the home of Dan Hendrick and Council Jimmy Van Bramer in Sunnyside Gardens, Queens. According to police at the scene Saturday morning, the intruder came in the front door and went out the back. The back faces a common court with 47th Street and 39th Avenue, so one could escape from another direction than the street entrance used to enter the premises. The house is located in the 108th precinct.
Plain-clothed detectives combed the neighborhood today, knocking on doors to find out if anyone saw anything out of the ordinary in the time. The detectives were called in from other precincts in addition to those of 108 Precinct. They did not reveal if anything was taken.
There is currently a 24-hour surveillance in process, and a fingerprints expert, clad in a white jumpsuit, from the onsite Mobile Crime Scene vehicle, was there Saturday evening taking a thorough inventory of fingerprints from the house.
When we asked whether the door had a Medeco or other lock, the officer said, "I'm sorry, but I cannot discuss an ongoing investigation."
The 108 Precinct which includes an large area of Western Queens, is among the precincts city-wide with a low rate of crime." - anonymous
