Two homes were burglarized and three cars had their rims and tires stolen since Monday in northeast Queens, the 109th Precinct said.

A man was seen fleeing a home near 23rd Avenue and 127th Street in College Point after being startled by an alarm and jumping into a late 90s model GM.

A second home invasion took place on Lee Street in College Point. The suspect fled when confronted by the victim.

The tire and rim thefts — one in Whitestone, two in College Point — occurred during the middle of the night. The precinct urged residents to install lug nut locks and alarms equipped with tilt sensors to help prevent these thefts.
