in my building,

The front lobby door had been broken for months and anyone can just walk in whenever they want. Also, the buzzer to the apartments hasn’t worked for a long time. You can’t hear who it is. And when the door was locked in the lobby, the buzzer wouldn’t open the door so you have to go downstairs to open it for them! Were paying so much for rent nowadays, its crazy that the landlords can’t take care of a simple thing!

Ringing the bell

Last night @ midnight there was a stranger ringing all the bells in my building. He sounded drunk thru the intercom. I did not buzz him in but one of my neighbors did and he was then roaming the building knocking on doors for a little while…
We must be very careful and not buzz people in if you don’t know who it is..

Whoever placed the cameras didn’t do such a great job. You can barely see her face. You can pick her out of a lineup from the top of her head.

How did he know the front door was open? He just walked right in as if it were planned, and he knew the door would be open?

The door wasn't open

What Shmira is saying is that a SLAM LOCK can be easily opened witha credit card and is tantamount to being left open

must be a cleaning lady

she knew exactly which apt & even if a door was open it take more than a 90 seconds to search and find cash….ironicly it seems there is a cop car right in front of the building as she exits ( i suspect she was a cleaning lady who knew the apt. and maybe pushed the unlock button before she left

omg!!!

Cleaning ladies tell their friends family boy friends if you have cash if it is easy to get your building or apartment

not a very good security company if the cameras are angled in a way that you can’t see the face of the person. Isn’t the point of the surveillance to be able to identify the perpetrators of crimes?

She knew where she was going. And what she was going for. It’s probably the cleaning lady or her associate. Or a recent worker.

She intended to go toward Schenectady but got spooked when she saw the police and turned toward Troy. Then walked toward Schenectady.

It is so obvious that this perpetrator knew that the people are not home at that time, knew which apartment to go to, and knew where the cash was laying. She knew this either firsthand or from someone elde that worked for these tenants. There was no hesitancy as to which apartment to go to, so it was surely an inside job, which should make it easy to catch the thief.
