FYI: I was burglarized on East 11th Street between A and B in mid-January in a similar manner, but the NYPD apprehended two people with some of my property. These guys were said to be operating around Manhattan. Case is still pending.

Wondering if these incidents are related, or if unrelated are they indicative of rising crime in the neighborhood?

Glad to hear that the two were arrested.... I really do think these break ins are indicative of the rising crime in the neighborhood — and city... Someone unsuccessfully tried to break into my apt building about six weeks ago....
