Brazen vandals defaced property, such as this mailbox on Beach 74 Street, at Arverne By The Sea on Saturday, August 18, prompting at least one resident to call for increased vigilance among residents. "The time has come for us to be more observant of the people that come through our community," said Charles Jacobs, president of the ABTS homeowners association. "And we should call the police for all suspicious activities." Police are investigating the rash of vandalism, which occurred during daylight hours. This fence on Beach 73 Street and Rockaway Beach Boulevard was defaced. Vandals "tagged" this light fixture on Lighthouse Drive. The same graffiti tag also showed up on this light fixture on Beach 74 Street.
