Break-In At ABTS
A would-be thief broke into the sales model at the Arverne By the Sea development last Saturday and tried – literally – to rip off a pricey plasma TV, police said.
Officers responded to 73-09 Spinnaker Drive at about 9:10 p.m. when a security guard dialed 911 after the alarm in the sales model was triggered. Police found the rear door of the brand-new home open, with no signs of forced entry. Once inside, police and ABTS security discovered that the kitchen window was broken and that someone had tried, unsuccessfully, to remove the plasma TV.
No items were missing, and there was no other damage to the home. A crime scene investigation unit recovered evidence from the home, but so far no arrests have been made.
