NYPD just rang my bell and told me there was a burglary in the apartment next door (595, Westview) while the guy was sleeping between 11am - 2pm. They took a lap top and something else (I think it was his wallet) The officer asked if I heard anything, but I wasn't home at the time. The officer asked me to call NYPD, not public safety, if I see anyone who doesn't belong.The Roosevelt Island Public Safety Department described the incident as:
05/02/14 - 1314 - 595 Main St. - Missing property - Search made with negative results.A NYPD Spokesperson said that a tenant at 595 Main Street left their apartment door unlocked and items worth more than $1700 were stolen.
Roosevelt Island Public Safety Director Jack McManus adds:
Westview Burglary. Female tenant comes home to find things out of order. Purse, ipad and phone missing. Once again, no sign of forced entry.It's hard to understand why some Roosevelt Island apartment doors remain unlocked.
