Just witnessed a robbery in my neighborhood

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
For the first time in my life I witnessed a robbery, in broad daylight!

There was a young guy (mabye early 20's) sitting in front of my neighbors house across the street in his car. He had parked his car so it was blocking the driveway, and he sat in the car for an hour and a half. At first we didnt report it because my neighbors son is in his early 20's, so we thought mabye it was just his friend waiting in his car for him.

Once an hour and a half passed by we knew something was up, as it appeared this guy was sniffing crack many times, and he just didnt look right, so we shut our doors and locked them.

My Dad called the police on this suspicious behavior and made out a report, and they never even came.

An hour passes by and the guy slowly gets out of his car, he starts walking around my neighbors front lawn dazed, and starts touching some statues. Then he proceeds to their backyard gate, and just stands there for 30 minutes hunched over, my Dad AGAIN called the police, but they still did not come!

We then see the guy obviously looking into their backyard, we knew he wasnt a friend but a robber. He broke into the backyard and starts coming out carrying dog toys (they have a dog) and flowers/wreaths. He starts placing flowers and dog toys on my neighbors gate, the guy must be high or something, not to mention VERY DUMB robbing in broad daylight with your liscense and face exposed!

My neighbors Dad comes home and sees the guy and confronts him, which is risky cause who knows if he has a gun? The guy said he was admiring my neighbors garden (as he proceeds to carry out more dog toys and random items from the yard) Finally he drops them and drives off in a hurry.

Turns out my neighbors son was sleeping the whole time and didnt even know he was being robbed, luckily nobody was hurt and no valuables were taken.

My neighbor reported the guy and we both were able to get a clear car description,license plate, and description of the "stupid" robber.

After the guy circles back in his car TWICE down our block again, the cops finally arrived after a 3rd report made! The car plate doesnt match the model, and the plate is from Queens I think, meanwhile he was here on Long Island! I think the car is stolen.

If only the cops had come in the TWO HOURS the guy was here, they would have got him! They still are unable to track him down!

And I got most of this on video! But didnt show it unless the cops need it in the future

I want to post it on YouTube cause the robber was so stupid and you cant see his face, but I think that would be illegal to do.

Whoa! That's scary. I don't know the legalities of YouTube but I think you should post it under some dumb crook news.

It wouldn't be illegal to post a video you made of somebody who didn't live somewhere breaking in and taking stuff.

I bet if I said he is selling drugs they would have come quicker.

To think he could have walked right in my neighbors house, went up the stairs, and if he was crazy with a gun shot my neighbors son, left, and nobody would have even known.

And my neighborhood is supposedly a "neighborhood watch" community. Yeah right!
