“If You See Something, Say Something”
An alert Crown Heights resident witnessed a suspicious man trying door handles along Eastern Parkway Tuesday morning, making his way from Albany Ave towards Kingston Ave.
The resident called Crown Heights Shomrim and began filming the man’s attempts to gain access to parked vehicles.
The Shomrim volunteers quickly spread out, keeping the man unaware that he was being followed as he made his way From Eastern Parkway to President Street. After following for forty-five minutes, the volunteers witnessed as the thief finally found three open vehicles, and decided to enter one.
The volunteers called the police as they surrounded the car, keeping the thief on scene until the police arrived.
The thief was arrested, and taken to the 71st Precinct in handcuffs.
