A rash of burglaries were reported in Boro Park over the Shabbos Nachamu weekend, with all the victims having been away in the Catskill for Shabbos.

All the burglaries occurred in the area of 10th Avenue and 46th Street, in which the burglar gained entry through an unlocked window near a fire escape. Roughly $30,000 in jewelry and thousands more in cash were stolen.

In another instance, a burglar broke into a home and attempted unsuccessfully to gain entry into a safe that was holding a hefty sum of money inside.

Boro Park Shomrim reminds residents to always be sure that all windows, doors, and anything else a burglar can use to make entry is properly locked.

If you see anything suspicious, please call the Boro Park Shomrim 24 hour emergency hotline at 718-871-6666.

  1. remember the color purple…..now remember the color black…..woke all the other adjective alongside of this and guess what you get a flovour rainbow of deceit

  2. Why do people keep large amounts of cash in a home in a place a thief can find it. If you must keep cash in the house think of an unusual place such as behind seforim, in shoes under a carpet or in an envelope taped to as washing machine. A burglar wants to be in and out in minutes As long as the burglaries are rewarding they will continue.

  3. “attempted unsuccessfully to gain entry into a safe that was holding a hefty sum of money inside”
    Is anyone thinking before they write this? Do you want him to come back?

  4. People who advertise their comings and goings via social media need to learn it puts them at risk for a home break in while away. Oh and cancel your mail, set lights on a timer, same with a radio and don’t keep wads of cash or valuables in your home.
