Residents point out that the crimes spike over the weekends, when an influx of outsiders crowd bars and restaurants in the busy 30th Avenue
Pearl Thomas was affected when her boyfriend’s
parents’ luxury 2007 Audi was broken into. “You know, it’s
embarrassing,” Thomas said. “I’ve lived in Astoria for the last seven
years and they’ve [the boyfriend’s parents] visited us before and
nothing happened. And now, we move into this area and the car gets
broken into,” the 36th Street resident said.
If you have a car in this or another area of Astoria, never leave any visible valuables--especially GPS units. If your case has been broken into, please take the time to report it.
