Teen Bandits Busted
Collared For Midville Break-Ins
Three teenagers were arrested by officers from the 104th Precinct early last Thursday morning, Aug. 25, for allegedly breaking into, and stealing items from a number of vehicles parked along streets in Middle Village, police reported.
Two of the perpetrators were identified by law enforcement sources as Patrick Jasienowski, 18, and Nicholas D’Angelo, 19, both residents of Penelope Avenue in Middle Village. A 15-year-old male who resides within the confines of the 112th Precinct was also taken into custody by police; his identity was not disclosed due to his age.
According to the criminal complaint provided by the Queens District Attorney’s office, the three suspects broke into several vehicles parked in the vicinity of 67th Street and 61st Drive at around 2:30 a.m. last Thursday.
Reportedly, Jasienowski and the 15-year-old defendant were ob- served illegally entering a 1994 Ford vehicle and looked through several other parked vehicles at the location.
It is alleged that the suspects broke into and stole GPS devices from two vehicles moments earlier— a 1999 Toyota parked on 61st Drive near 67th Street and a 2009 Nissan that was located several blocks away on 60th Drive and 69th Place.
Jasienowski and the 15-year-old suspect were observed entering a Hyundai that pulled up along 67th Street near 61st Drive and sped away from the location.
Members of the 104th Precinct responded to the scene after receiving calls regarding the reported break-ins and began a canvass of the area. During their search, police reportedly stopped a Hyundai vehicle driven by D’Angelo at the corner of Eliot Avenue and 70th Street.
In statements made to police, according to the criminal complaint, the suspect admitted to picking up Jasienowski and the juvenile defendant following the alleged thefts, then dropping them off by a gas station at the corner of Eliot Avenue and 69th Street.
Jasienowski and the 15-year-old suspect were also stopped by police moments later, it was noted.
All three suspects were taken into custody by P.O. Joseph Verderber and charged each with four counts of unauthorized use of a vehicle, three counts of criminal possession of stolen property and three counts of petit larceny, police said.
