Roxbury Suffers Rash Of Auto Break-Ins
About a dozen unlucky Roxbury residents woke up last Friday morning and found shattered glass on the blacktop next to their vehicles, which had been ransacked.
One victim in the smash-and-grab, Eve Smith, told The Wave she lost Christmas presents including an Xbox and games that were still in the Toys R Us shopping bag. Her car’s tinted windows were not enough to keep the thief or thieves from spotting the goodies in the back seat. Smith said a local electrician had tools stolen from four different work vehicles and one man had his passport stolen from his car’s glove compartment.
All of the vehicles were parked overnight on State Road or in one of the community’s parking lots that are monitored by Breezy Point Security. Police in the 100 Precinct took reports from the victims and said an investigation is ongoing.
