Police to hold a meeting about recent Ridgewood car break-ins Wednesday.

After 19 car break-ins occurred in Ridgewood over the last week, the 104th Precinct has decided to hold an emergency meeting tonight to alert residents and seek more information.

The meeting will be held tonight, Wednesday, Dec. 27, at 8 p.m. at 606 Woodward Ave. in Ridgewood.

According to police, the 104th Precinct responded to approximately 19 reported car break-ins between Dec. 18 and Dec. 24. Most of the cars that were broken into were private cabs, police said. In some of the cases property was stolen, but in other cases the perpetrators took nothing at all.

Nearly all of the incidents took place within a small triangular area bordered by Menahan Street to the west, Forest Avenue to the east, and Myrtle Avenue to the south. The 104th Precinct Detective Squad is actively investigating the situation, and patrols in the affected area will be increased until further notice, police said.

The area has been canvassed for witnesses and video, but police are welcoming additional unreported break-ins and any more information at the Wednesday night meeting. Anyone with information is also asked to call the 104th Precinct at 718-386-3004 or Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS.
