Re: Home Invasion Leaves Woman Tied Up, Robbed Inside Jersey City High-Rise Apartment Building (Monaco)

Home away from home

By Patrick Villanova
The Jersey Journal

More than $100,000 in jewelry, phones, and cash were stolen during a home invasion early Thursday at a luxury high-rise in the Newport section of Jersey City, authorities said.

The Jersey City Police Department's Major Case Unit is investigating the home invasion at 465 Washington Blvd. -- one of the two 50-story Monaco towers -- city spokeswoman Kimberly Wallace-Scalcione said.

Police responded to the complex just after midnight on the call of a home invasion and determined that two males allegedly forced their way into an apartment and robbed four women, Wallace-Scalcione said.

No one was injured, Wallace-Scalcione said, adding that authorities believe the incident involved people who knew each other.

Things that make you go hmmm...

I have found it pretty common for non Americans (excluding Western Europeans) to mistrust banks and keep everything in cash.

It took a while to convince a Turkish woman I knew to put the $50k she had in cash into an actual bank account.


While part of me is as skeptical as some of the other posters, I know that what you say is also very true. I had a grandfather who was so mistrustful of banks (I think he was partly senile, tbh) that he kept a ton of cash under the mattress. Literally kept well over 10K in $100 denomination. Some people come from different backgrounds at complete odds with our more modern way of thinking. Even my mother likes to keep a lot of cash on hand "just in case". Hard to tell without more details about the situation and victim.

I was thinking the same thing too, if someone broke into my home they might be able to find like $20 in quarters and whatever cash i had in my wallet, but that's about it. The fact she had that kind of cash lying around seems fishy.

Why is it every time you hear of an incident of a break in or, in this case, a possible home invasion, the victims have thousands and thousands of dollars in cash in their home? Am I missing something? My money is in the bank and rarely do I even have $100 in cash in my house at any given time. Maybe I'm skeptical, but incidents with these claims always make me suspicious.

Jersey City authorities are investigating a reported home invasion robbery that had a woman tied up then robbed inside a luxury high-rise building in the city.

According to preliminary reports, police were called to 465 Washington Boulevard after being alerted of a possible home invasion that occurred inside the building at around midnight.

Reports say officers arriving at the scene found a woman who reported that an unidentified suspect forced entry inside her 22nd-floor apartment, tied her up, then took more than $10,000 in cash.

The woman did not suffer any severe injuries according to reports.

The incident remains under investigation.

Umm, I think you need to read slower. When you said you can always grow your own, I was merely pointing out that it might not necessarily be so.

I was warning against the possibility that New Jersey could not include a grow provision, after it was brought up that taxes were the primary motivation and they might limit grow. That does not mean I support it!


I now understand that you are not aware of the details of the bill. There is currently no provision for home growing in this bill. It's not a "possibility", it's the current reality. Also, at no point did I say you can, "always grow your own." I'm advocating for the right to do so, which under the current bill will still be illegal. Understand?


Yes, and that sucks. You're right, I did not read the bill, but in all your posts you did not actually say growing would still be illegal.

Re: Oil tank sweep
#13

In regard to the comment “if the tank is buried in front of the property and that area is paved, what is the big deal?”. The big deal is the steel tank will eventually become paper thin due to corrosion and collapse leaving a very large sink hole. Also, many tanks were abandoned with oil still in the tank and once that oil leaves the tank, which it will, remediation of the property will be required by the State.

It is as important as having a home inspection performed to have a oil tank sweep done of the property being purchased. The reason is any removal or clean-up cost will be borne by the seller. Why risk the potential exposure of having to pay possibly thousands of dollars by not having a sweep performed?

Always make sure you hire a professional company that has been in business at least 3 years doing searches and shows proof of “errors and omission” liability insurance. At ATS Environmental, we have been doing oil tank searches since 1995 and have literally found thousands of tanks.

In our experience, many homeowners purchased the house and never knew there was an underground tank. In some cases, we found some people even camouflaged the tank area. The report issued from a tank sweep where no tank was found, should be kept with your important papers because this is your insurance policy against a missed tank by the company that did the tank scan.

By Terrence T. McDonald tmcdonald@jjournal.com
The Jersey Journal

Jersey City is implementing a marijuana decriminalization policy that its mayor and new chief municipal prosecutor believe will increase racial justice while protecting public safety.

The policy, which is expected to begin officially tomorrow, will downgrade some marijuana charges to non-criminal offenses; encourage prosecutors to seek dismissal of low-level marijuana charges; and recommend diverting defendants with a criminal past and signs of addiction to the city's community court.

Huh? What argument do you think I am making? It's already been established that Washington passed recreational legalization without home growing. So it's not beyond the realm of possibility that New Jersey could do likewise.

The 5-minute limit on ordinances was defeated again. Voting no was Boggiano, Yun, Rivera, and Robinson. Voting yes is Ridley, Prinz-Arez, Solomon, and Rolando. Watterman abstained because she said you cannot use 5 minutes on the budget. When I checked the time of the council meetings from January to April the average meeting was 3 hours, the shortage was 45 minutes and the longest was 4 hours. May and June were exceptionally long because the Polish community from New York and all over New Jersey came to complain about the removal of the statue. Here is the irony, the caucus meetings where the public does not speak is actually longer than most council meetings. Monday caucus meeting was scheduled to start at 10:00 am but actually went to 3:30 PM. That is a 5 and one half hours time frame.

Didn't know about WA. But this "overtaxed" is overblown. If an $8 gram has $2 tax, do you really think that's so awful? Booze is similarly taxed and no one is hysterical. The dispensary limiting IS a big deal. If you have to drive an hour, or spend hours on public transit to reach the nearest dispensary, that's deliberate hardship.


Please... does anyone really believe the state will make it difficult to purchase legal weed? That type of restriction would defeat the purpose of making it legal for their constituents. As some one said earlier, high taxes and inaccessibility will only create a booming underground market.
