Over $20K worth of cash, jewelry stolen in violent NYC home invasion

Police are searching for three suspects in a violent home invasion in Queens on Friday.

 Police say one of the suspects showed up at the home posing as a flower deliveryman on Haddon St. in Jamaica Estates just before noon. The man, who was holding a bouquet of flowers waited for several minutes after ringing the doorbell. That is when a woman peeked through the window, saw the flowers, and opened the door. Sources say he gave the woman's husband's name when she opened the door.

Two other men then appeared from out of nowhere and ransacked the home, stealing $20,000 in cash as well as $50,000 in jewelry plus mink coats.
Sources tell Eyewitness News when they entered the house, they cut the phone lines and the internet.

New body camera video shows moments after Arbery shooting

New body camera video shows moments after Arbery shooting

Police began arriving almost immediately after Ahmaud Arbery was shot in a coastal Georgia subdivision, finding the unarmed Black man lying facedown in his own blood while the man who shot him paced with hands on his head.

Body camera video from Glynn County police officers who responded to the fatal shooting Feb. 23 shows the first interactions authorities had with Gregory and Travis McMichael, the white father and son who armed themselves and chased the 25-year-old Black man after spotting him running in their neighborhood. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution first reported on the footage, which it obtained after the video was filed with public court documents in the murder case against the McMichaels.

Travis McMichael can been seen cooperating with an officer taking photos of his blood-spattered arms and a bruise on his face, where he says Arbery punched him. The officer asks him to be patient while police collect evidence.

“I want it done right, because this doesn’t look good,” Travis McMichael says. “I mean, I just shot a man. Last thing I’ve ever wanted to do in my life.”

Attorneys for the McMichaels argue they were justified to pursue Arbery because they suspected he was a burglar and that Travis McMichael acted in self-defense when he blasted Arbery three times with a shotgun. Prosecutors say Arbery was no criminal but merely out jogging and the McMichaels acted as illegal vigilantes.

More than two months passed before the McMichaels were charged in Arbery's death, after cellphone video of the shooting became public and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation took over the case from local police.

The body camera footage shows the first officer arrive soon after hearing gunshots and finds the McMichaels standing on either side of Arbery, sprawled face-down on the pavement.

"All right guys, everybody’s got their weapons up, correct?” the officer asks. The men aren't holding guns.

Gregory McMichael can be seen trying to console his son, who's pacing back and forth.

“It's going to be OK,” Gregory McMichael tells him. “You had no choice.”

One of Arbery's legs moves and his head turns slightly. A gasping sound can be heard on the recording.

The second officer to arrive puts on rubber gloves, rolls Arbery over and presses a hand to the wound in his chest.

“He's still breathing, man,” says a man's voice nearby.

“I know. I'm going to try to do something for him," the officer replies. He stops after about two minutes and calls to tell dispatchers Arbery has died.

Gregory McMichael had recently retired from a long career as an investigator for the local district attorney. At least two of the arriving officers recognized him and called to him by name. Those he doesn't know he tells that he's a former law officer, and that the .357 magnum handgun he grabbed before chasing Arbery was police-issued.

Gregory McMichael tells police Arbery attacked his son and “was trying to take the shotgun away from him.”

“To be perfectly honest with you, if I could've got a shot at the guy, I’d have shot him myself,“ he tells one officer.

Another officer approaches and says: “I do know Greg. How are you doing?”

He asks her what police plan to do with his son.

“Y’all aren’t putting him in cuffs are you?” Gregory McMichael says.

“No," the officer replies. “Why would he be in cuffs?”

Prosecutors have said it was Arbery who was fighting for this life when he was shot. Cellphone video shows Arbery trying to run around the McMichaels’ pickup truck before coming face-to-face with Travis McMichael holding a shotgun. The video shows Arbery punching him and grappling for the gun in between gunshots. Arbery staggers and falls after the third shot hits him at point-blank range.

The video was taken by William "Roddie" Bryan, a neighbor who joined the chase and also was later charged with murder. The body camera footage also shows Bryan's first interview with police.

Like the McMichaels, Bryan says he believes Arbery was responsible for break-ins in their neighborhood. It was later revealed that it was an open-framed house under construction that Arbery was seen entering, and an attorney for the owner later said nothing was stolen.

“He obviously was up to something,” Bryan tells an officer, while describing how he maneuvered his own truck to try to prevent Arbery from escaping.

“Should we have been chasing him?” Bryan says. “I don’t know.”

State investigators with the GBI arrested the McMichaels on murder charges the day after the agency began its own investigation in May. A judge has denied bond for all three defendants, whose attorneys are appealing the decision to keep them jailed.

The Glynn County officers dispatched to the shooting don't seem to question the McMichaels' account that they were justified to kill Arbery.

In one video, an officer standing outside the crime-scene tape asks another: “Did he shoot him? A self-defense thing?”

“That’s what it looks like,” the other officer replies.

SEE IT: Suspect wanted for string of Queens robberies falls out back window during foiled robbery attempt

A clumsy crook caught on camera falling out a Queens woman’s window during a failed burglary attempt is wanted for a string of similar rear-window robberies, police said.

Cops on Thursday released surveillance video of the foiled Oct. 16 crime in Astoria.

The black-and-white footage shows the suspect — wearing a hoodie and baseball cap — enter the building near Ditmars Blvd. and Crescent St. through a fenced backyard around 5:30 a.m. and climb up to an apartment window.

A 36-year-old woman sleeping inside awoke to see the suspect and yelled out, police said.

Video shows the would-be robber falling out the window and crashing onto a bicycle before running away.

The suspect struck again days later, entering through an unlocked rear window of a three-story building near Ditmars Blvd. and 35th St. sometime between Oct. 19 and 21, cops said.

He swiped an iPad Mini from a 29-year-old woman’s apartment and ran off. No one was home at the time, police said.

The crook showed up again between Nov. 2 and 3, slipping into a 32-year-old man’s empty home near 41 St. and 23 Ave. through the back window and stealing two watches and roughly $6,000 in cash, cops said.

On Nov. 4, sometime between 11 a.m. and 9 p.m., the suspect stole a bracelet, four rings and about $2,000 in cash from an 87-year-old woman’s empty apartment near 38 St. and 21 Ave.

The bespectacled burglar is still on the loose. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS.

NYPD captures suspected serial burglar on jewelry store roof

NYPD captures suspected serial burglar on jewelry store roof

An alleged serial robber’s latest heist was foiled early Saturday by the NYPD’s Special Ops team — which caught the dramatic rooftop-arrest on a night-vision cam attached to a police helicopter, cops said.

Police were called to 756 Allerton Ave. in the Bronx around 4:30 a.m. after the perp set off an alarm system for one of the jewelry stores located inside the building, police said.

There, they found Francisco Barrera, 31, on the roof, and called in the department’s Emergency Service Unit to come retrieve him, according to police.

Video of the early-morning arrest taken from the sky shows Barrera crouching on the roof as two cops approach with a ladder. One of them appears to gesture toward Barrera like he’s giving him an order.

Barrera then slowly walks to the edge of the roof with his arms up, as four more cops creep into the frame, with their hands at their waistband holsters.

Barrera is then surrounded by the officers as he descends the ladder, and the video cuts off.

“While you were sleeping, #Aviation pilots once again led ESU members to a location in the @NYPD49Pct where a perp wanted for an attempted Burglary of a jewelry store was hiding,” the department’s Special Ops team Tweeted.

His rap sheet street dates to at least 2009, cops said.

Manhattan pack of thieves steal thousands on eight-day spree

Manhattan pack of thieves steal thousands on eight-day spree

A pack of thieves has spent the last eight days roaming Manhattan and breaking into restaurants, bars and dry cleaners — stealing thousands of dollars in cash and clothing, the NYPD said Wednesday.

Cops released surveillance photos of seven males believed to be in their teens to twenties who have allegedly been committing the burglaries by breaking through the businesses’ front doors. The crimes occurred between Monday, Sept. 14 and Tuesday, Sept. 22.

“While inside, the individuals removed assorted amounts of currency from the cash registers totaling approximately $10,000,” cops said. “In addition, they removed assorted clothing valued at approximately $5,000 and caused $5,000 in property damage.”

While most of the jobs netted only a few hundred dollars at a time, the crew struck gold at a Midtown dry cleaner.

The burglars grabbed about $6,000 in clothing, including Moncler jackets and Etro sweaters, which can both cost thousands of dollars apiece, at King Garment Care on Sixth Avenue, a police source said. They only got $200 from the register at The Happiest Hour bar on 10th Street in the West Village, the source said.

Surveillance photographs of the crooks were obtained from an incident that occurred around 4 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 21, at Green Apple Cleaners at 119 Greenwich Ave.

Anyone with information regarding the crimes is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM or on Twitter @NYPDTips.
