Burglars Jack Snowblower From Neighbor’s Driveway


Cops are asking for the pubic’s assistance identifying two brazen crooks who rolled up to a neighbor’s driveway last month and loaded a snowblower in the back of a pickup truck.

A surveillance video released by the NYPD shows one of the bandits, wearing a hooded sweatshirt, waving his buddy into the driveway. Police say the heist took place at 11:30pm on Tuesday, February 2, at a home on Avenue Y, near East 12th Street.

The duo then casually moves the weighty equipment into the back of the vehicle and pulls away.

The burglary occurred one week after a record-breaking blizzard blanketed the neighborhood in 27-inches of snow. You can still see remnants of the snowfall around the driveway where the crime took place.

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers hotline at 800-577-TIPS. The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) and then entering TIP577.
