there arent that many white camaro convertibles with a tan top in this area.
also a traffic cam at the 31st ave intersection.

nab the driver as accomplice, and he’ll give up his moron buddy.
should be an open/shut case.


Let me guess, parking dispute, guy starts recording, takes his phone and goes, or some other nonsense. Hey whichever precinct runs this area, you seriously need to patrol steinway and make people move! Every day buses, trucks, etc cannot pass because of double parking and chatting. It’s a hellhole, I hate Steinway and recently it attracts all sort of garbage like this person.
Word of caution, you can record people, keep your windows closed.


114th pct. good luck getting through to them, and when you do, getting a po dispatched 6 hours later only to say there was nothing going on when they got there…
