The Bright Side Of The Storm – Crime Is Down

lpd snow tls 12-26-10At least there is a bright side to the storm which kept thousands indoors for two days. It kept criminals indoors too. Detective Lieutenant Paul daly tells TLS, without using the ‘Q’ word – a word not frequently used in the police department – it’s been relatively Quiet, aside from a few of the usual car burglaries, which occurred on East 9th Street as well as on East County Line.

In fact, Daly says, the footprints in the snow has helped police solve several crimes in the past, by leading them to their suspects.

More snow anyone? TLS-CCH.

  1. Yay! I don’t have to lock my car because no one can steal it anyway, can’t get out of the driveway, no one plowed near it. Don’t have to lock my front door either because there’s no access to the house there from the street. Also anyone who walks in the snow – your footprints will give you away!

  2. Yep, crime is down. But keep your homes and vehicles padded because when these crooks are finally done hibernating their going to try and make up for missed days.

    I hope i’m wrong, but its in their blood. And until politicians actually do something about it instead of screaming a couple of days before elections about the need to reduce crime (how anyone buys into that kind of junk is beyond me) its going to go on and on….

  3. It is nauseous to whine and complain non stop. You are right. However, if you would have your own car busted in, and live in an area that gets car jacked a number of times a month….and no one does anything….maybe you would feel the same.

    Even so complaining is gross.

  4. its amazing how people can just complain and find the bad in everything its not like the dpw was just sitting around doing nothing they were doing the best that they could if people want they can move back to brooklyn and not even see a plow truck till this afternoon and i give a lot of credit to all the chaverim and emt in town for the outstanding job taking calls all threw the storm from the beginning till even now

  5. I hope that cop car isn’t driving. It’s got snow on it and the snow might fly off and cause damage to a driver behind it. Also it’s the LAW to remove all the snow on a car., NO EXCEPTIONS!!!!!

  6. the law doesnt apply to snow currently accumulating, its only after the snow has ended and idiots get into their car and turn the wirndshield wipers on and think that its now ok to drive….maybe instead of hiring a lt gov to do part of his job and not take a vacation, Christie couldve left some money in the budget for municipalities in his state to afford to plow roads

  7. Loving it! No more knocking on our doors, asking if our homes are for sale, when we’re eating our Sunday dinner. Wish it snowed every Sunday.

  8. To #17. My thoughts exactly. When we purchased our home in Lakewood, we went to a realtor and also looked for “for sale signs;” however would never knock on their doors, especially if they didn’t have a sign on their home. It’s all a matter of respect.
