Burglary, child endangerment


A resident of 276 Villa Ave. called police twice on Monday, Dec. 15 — first to report a burglary in her apartment, and later to tell police her upstairs neighbor had left his two young great-grandchildren alone that evening.

In her first call, the woman told police her apartment was broken into and ransacked Monday morning or early afternoon.  According to the report, the contents of dresser drawers had been  dumped on a bed in the apartment, and the woman said $4,000 cash, a $1,200 Macbook Pro, an $8,000 Cuban gold necklace and an iPad were all stolen during the burglary.

At around 7 p.m. that evening, police received a second call from the woman reporting that her upstairs neighbor, Nick Marks, 73, had left his two great-grandchildren, aged 4 and 10, alone in his apartment for 30 minutes. When police arrived, they found the door to the apartment unlocked, and were greeted by the boys, who said their great-grandfather had gone out for food. Marks returned with food while police were in the apartment.

Marks told police the children live with his granddaughter, and he sometimes watches them for her. Marks was arrested and charged with risk of injury to a child. He was released on a promise to appear, with a court date of Dec. 29.
