NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The Ridgewood and Forest Hills sections of Queens were on alert Tuesday night, because thieves have ransacked 14 homes in just two months.
Police believe the same burglars are responsible for the break-ins. In each case, they struck during the day, stealing cash, jewelry and other valuables.
One victim, who was too afraid to reveal her identity, told CBS 2’s Hazel Sanchez that the thieves broke into her home in the middle of the afternoon earlier this month.
