May 13, 2021 By Ryan Songalia

Police are looking for a man who allegedly smashed the front window of a Flushing jewelry store in March and then took off with $32,000 worth of merchandise from the display window.

The NYPD released surveillance footage yesterday of the suspect breaking the glass window of Luk Fook Jewelry in New World Mall, located at 136-20 Roosevelt Ave. The incident took place just before 4 p.m. on March 26.

The suspect then fled the scene and ran into a residential building at 40-04 Bowne Street, before leaving southbound on a bicycle, police say.

The man is described as having a beard with a mustache, and was last seen wearing a blue cap, a dark colored jacket and beige paints, with black sneakers and a dark colored backpack.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM or on Twitter @NYPDTips. All calls are strictly confidential

If black lives matter, why is that blacks are the ones committing all of the crimes? In the subway stations, on the subway, on buses, on the streets, robbing and vandalizing businesses and houses of worship, etc.? Or do the politicians only scream and yell when a cop hurts somebody who’s black?

Op-ed: An urgent call for revising NY’s criminal justice reforms to protect public safety

Apr. 11, 2024 By Council Member Robert Holden

In 2019, the State Legislature and Governor Andrew Cuomo embarked on a controversial overhaul of New York’s criminal justice system by enacting several laws, including cashless bail and sweeping changes to discovery laws. Simultaneously, the New York City Council passed laws that compounded these challenges, notably the elimination of punitive segregation in city jails and qualified immunity for police officers.
