During the period between October 26 to November 1, 2020 members of the GRPD handled 344 calls for service, the highlights of which included:
10-29-2020 - 1:17 PM – A Fair Lawn woman reported that she left her unlocked vehicle parked in a commercial parking lot on Glen Avenue for two days. Sometime between 2PM on October 17th and the time of the report, someone entered the vehicle and rummaged through the interior. Nothing was reported missing.
10-31-2020 - 10:10 PM – A Glen Rock man reported that he was attempting to resolve an issue with his son’s iCloud account. While doing so, he found a “how-to” video on YouTube which provided a customer support phone number. When the man contacted what he believed was Apple iCloud support he was advised that he needed to purchase an iTunes gift card in the amount of $100 and provide the purported customer service representative with the card and pin number. He then permitted the representative to access his computer remotely which resulted in additional fraud, with over $1,000 being transferred out of his bank account. This matter has been referred to the detective bureau for review.
11-01-2020 - 11:05 AM – Patrols, along with Glen Rock Fire Fighters, responded to the 500 block of Lincoln Avenue on a report of a house struck by a motor vehicle. Investigation found that a 62-year-old Glen Rock man suffered a medical emergency while driving causing him to leave the roadway and strike the home. The man was located a short distance away, still in distress. The driver was examined by EMT’s on scene and transported for medical care by a family member. The house was examined and determined not to have sustained serious structural damage.
