Day-Glo Dimwit Caught on Tape
By Dan Gesslein
BRONX, NEW YORK, NOVEMBER 7- If the burglar wanted to keep a low profile maybe he should not have worn the day-glo traffic safety vest when he was caught on camera ripping off a medical facility.
Although this criminal mastermind did keep his hoodie up when he robbed a West Farms medical center, he did not wear a mask. In addition the day-glo traffic safety vest helped illuminate his face when his image was caught on surveillance video.
At around 3:45 a.m. on November 2, cops say the suspect broke the glass door of a medical center at 979 Cross Bronx Expressway and robbed the center. The suspect is seen on video carrying a giant screen TV out of the facility.
Police are also asking for the public’s help in catching suspects in another burglary caught on tape. At around 2:30 p.m. on September 21, the two suspects entered a University Heights apartment through a window. Cops say the pair removed electronic equipment and paperwork.
The first suspect is described as wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with a white shirt underneath, grey pants and white sneakers. The second suspect is described wearing a red and black baseball hat, a white hooded sweatshirt, green pants and black boots.
