Dumbo Window Smasher Caught; Blogger Tip Borne Out
Remember the Dumbo Car Window Smasher, and the concerned citizens of Dumbo NYC who worked the press and police in his pursuit? One commenter liked local thug "Darren Stone aka Squarehead" for the crimes; Stone's rap sheet, which a tipster helpfully forwarded to Runnin' Scared, lists no less than 12 criminal mischief raps, as well as cites for burglary and more. Today the Brooklyn Paper says that Squarehead was picked up Wednesday: he cut his hand during one smash-and-grab, and cops made a DNA match. Nice going, citizen journalists!
