A 17-year-old was arrested last week after he allegedly turned the top of a Glenwood Houses apartment building into a shooting gallery.
Prosecutors said that Ty-Meem Johnson was charged with criminal possession of a weapon, reckless endangerment and resisting arrest after he allegedly fired off a number of rounds on the top of a building near Avenue H and East 57th Street.
Cops said that they were patrolling the Flatlands housing complex at 7:10 p.m. on November 7 when they heard the shots.
When they approached the building, they saw Johnson flee the building. A .9-mm Ruger was in his hand, they alleged.
Johnson tried to run off, but was apprehended after a brief chase, police said.
Investigators later learned that he had allegedly fired the shots from the rooftop, although it was unclear if he was aiming at anyone.
Police said that there were about 15 people in front of the building when the shots were fired.
A 17-year-old was arrested for burglary last week after cops allegedly caught him inside his victim’s home, rummaging for loot.
Officials said that a member of the Flatbush Shomrim patrol helped police nab Isaam Henry after he allegedly broke into the home on Avenue I near East 27th Street.
The owners of the home were reportedly away on vacation when Henry allegedly broke a back window and climbed inside at 1:30 p.m. on November 2.
A Shomrim volunteer reportedly witnessed the break-in and called 911.
Responding officers allegedly found Henry inside the victim’s bedroom with a hammer and a crowbar – tools of the burglary trade, officials said.
Thanks to the miracle of DNA typing, a few drops of blood recovered from a looted car helped police apprehended the thief allegedly responsible for the break-in.
Police said that Frank Aspromonte, 36, was charged with grand larceny and criminal mischief this week after he was identified as the one who allegedly broke into a 2001 Ford Ecoline E250 parked on Ralph Avenue near Avenue K on the night of August 16.
The victim told police that when he returned to his car the next morning, his side window was broken. An iPod, satellite radio, GPS device and hundreds of dollars in car stereo equipment had been ripped out of the car, officials were told.
The only lead police had was some blood found on the dashboard, seat, visor and some paperwork rifled through in the glove compartment.
Believing that the thief must have cut himself when he bashed the window, police collected a sample of the blood and sent it to a DNA lab.
The DNA matched Aspromonte’s which was catalogued in the state’s criminal justice database.
On top the other charges, Aspromonte is also facing one count of burglary, since the victim used his Ford for business, officials said.
An intoxicated motorist slammed into two parked cars in Marine Park last week, but it wasn’t his fault.
Well, not exactly.
Raynold Celiny told the officers who showed up at the accident at Kimball Street and Avenue S at 3:15 a.m. November 5 that he was motoring along, minding his own business, when another car cut him off.
Celiny told police that the other vehicle caused him to lose control of his 1998 Toyota, which went sailing into another Toyota, this one a 2009, as well as a 2009 Nissan Altima, damaging both.
Police would have been inclined to believe Celiny if not for his allegedly slurred speech and red, watery eyes – signs of drunkenness, officials alleged.
Following a Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) score of .145 (well over the legal limit), Celiny was taken into custody charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol, officials said.
