Arrest Made In Series Of Roosevelt Island Burglaries At Roosevelt Landings Reports NYPD 114th Precinct Commander Maloney At RIRA Public Safety Committee Meeting Last Night - Investigation Is Continuing He Says

As previously reported:

... A series of burglaries have occurred at the Roosevelt Landings over the past several weeks. There are no indications that forced entry was used to enter these apartments.

Instead, entry appears to have been made by compromising apartment doors that were not double-locked. In several of these incidents, residents were at home while the Burglary occurred.

The suspect(s) have removed property that can be easily carried such as Laptops, Pocketbooks and Purses...
During last night's Roosevelt Island Residents Association (RIRA) Public Safety Committee (PSC) Meet and Greet Question and Answer Session With Roosevelt Island Public Safety Department Director Jack McManus, the NYPD's 114 Precinct Commander Deputy Inspector Kevin Maloney discussed
