“Green side up!” – our cops receive sod-laying instruction

Back to training class

Stake out a place in front, bad guy simply goes out the back. Happened with one of the (bad) Chimblos back in the day: 16 cops, four sides to the house, everyone piled up on the front porch while Officer Muldoon rang the doorbell and Chimblo scooted. Now, they’ve done it again:

According to police reports, managers at the 160 East Putnam Avenue [Radio Shack] store reported that three men they recognized as shoplifters had returned to the premises and were acting suspiciously.  Multiple officers were dispatched to the scene, surrounding the premises. Officers reported observing the three men “walking slowly” through the store’s front window [and how they walked through the window, I’ll never know – Ed] . The men eventually noticed the police presence, prompting Santana to leave undetected through a back door. One suspect, later identified as Hay, was seen reaching into the waistband of his pants and removing an object, which he attempted to hide on a store counter. The two men then exited in the front and were immediately approached by police.

This is just not that difficult, people, and if it is, the Cos Cob Fire Department’s next door – maybe ask them how it’s done.

    You’re lucky the cops didn’t react by shooting the store manager.

    They do a great job of blocking inlets in Greenwich waterways.

      Further proof why all the expensive gadgets are a waste of tax payer money. Money would be better spent digging a hole. Oh yeah, that’s already being done at GHS. Well then, buy the cops more toys to play with.

    This area seems to have interesting bad luck surrounding it. Last summer someone stole a car from the same parking lot in back of the Radio Shack. It all happened as I was getting some fish at Fjord Fisheries. I did not know it was that easy to steal cars anymore. The owner must have left their keys in the car.

    What, nobody got beat up?

    ‘New Jersey man escapes 5 year sentence after dash cam footage clears him, indicts cops’

    “Evidence from a dashboard camera on a police cruiser ended a nightmare for a New Jersey man facing false charges of eluding police, resisting arrest and assault.

    Prosecutors dismissed all the criminal charges against Marcus Jeter, 30, of Bloomfield, N.J. and instead indicted two Bloomfield police officers for falsifying reports and one of them for assault after the recording surfaced showing police officers beating Jeter during a traffic stop, according to WABC of New York. A third has pleaded guilty to tampering.
    ….
    Without the tape, prosecutors had been demanding a five-year prison sentence. …” [video of incident included]

    GPD – outsmarted by a Chimblo. That’s got to be a first.

    Has anyone else noticed the recent uptick in activity from New York in Cos Cob? There was the recent car break-ins – 3 guys from the Bronx , recent credit card fraud as well. I wonder if the word is getting out that we are easy targets.
