The following is a report from the East Meadow Citizens Patrol:
Just a warning to keep vigilant while we move around the Salisbury/Barnum neighborhood. The last attempted burglary that I am aware of happened a couple of days ago when the white work van, which has been seen on the blocks where some burglaries had occurred, surfaced and pulled into the driveway of one of our residents.
Another resident was on the ball and got the plate number. That was a very important piece to the puzzle. The guy knew he was made and took off. The police were happy that one of our neighbors did the right thing and called 911 with the information.
I spoke with the Inspector of the third precinct last night and he assured me there are more. Another white van truck was detained after he took scrap metal. People don't belong on private properties, therefore, if you see this action too, call it in.
The police department has burglary units out there trying to get these guys. They seem to know their way around our neighborhood too.
There was another incident that I heard of, regarding the attempted theft of some items from outside a home on Grand Boulevard. Again, a vigilant resident noticed odd behavior of the thieves and called the police.
