The Upper East Side has hit a “rough spot” in commercial and residential burglaries, according to 19th precinct Deputy Inspector James M. Grant.
There have been 16 more burglaries year-to-date than in the same period last year. The police have identified — and are looking for — a single individual believed to be responsible for at least five of them.
“We’re going to get him,” Grant said.
