Astoria Burglars Break into Apartment, Look Directly at Cameras

Something about a burglar not afraid of being caught doesn’t sit right with us.


The 114th is currently investing a burglary orchestrated by two who apparently weren’t afraid to show a little sneak peak of their faces.


As originally reported by DNAinfo, the thieves broke into an Astoria apartment located on 37th street through a back window, and proceeded to steal a MacBook Pro, jewelry, a second laptop, luggage and $100 in cash. The burglary occur on January 13th, right before noon. The apartment belonged to a 23-year old women.


In the video of the suspects, they both lift their caps and look directly at the video camera – clearly showing who they were.



Astoria – listen. We’ve talked about this before. We heard it straight from the 114th: Lock your windows. Lock your doors. Seriously. Just do it. Put a note by your front door reminding you to lock everything before you go. We all go out something without locking our windows sometimes, but the majority of burglaries – as directly reported by the 114th – are done to houses and apartments with open door and windows.
