A burglar entered 1469 President Street in Crown Heights on Tuesday, December 30, 2014 at 12:25PM and made off with $2000 in cash.
Crown Heights Shmira was able to obtain the surveillance footage from the time of the incident.
In the footage a woman is seen entering the building and ringing all the bells until an unsuspecting tenant buzzed her in. She then walks directly to one of the apartments on the ground floor, disappears inside, and within three minutes is seen leaving the premises.
A Police report was taken and the NYPD Evidence Collection Team dusted for fingerprints.
After speaking to the tenants, Shmira learned that the door wasn’t locked properly and that is most likely how the burglar was able to obtain access so quickly to the apartment.
“Locking the door knob alone does not qualify as sufficient security,” a Shmira member said “Anyone with a credit card can open the door in under a minute. Please lock your doors with a proper bolt lock. Additionally, do not buzz anyone in without verifying their identity first.”
