Five Shomrim Members Honored by NYPD for Help in Nabbing Serial Burglar

Boro Park – Five members of the Shomrim volunteer patrol were honored Tuesday evening for their help in arresting a suspect wanted in multiple home invasions.

The NYPD’s 72nd precinct awarded plaques to the members at the monthly Community Council Meeting.

The award was for the Shomrim members’ help in capturing John Perez a month ago. Perez was wanted by police for a series of burglaries, as well as for not showing up to court for a bench warrant.

A Shomrim member spotted him on 16th Ave. and 65th Street on the morning of Jan. 22 and began following him. Perez even broke into yet another two homes during the surveillance. He was taken into custody by police as he made his way down 60th Street and 8th Ave.
