One suspect has been arrested and linked directly to the recent burglaries in Bay Ridge and surrounding communities. Although he is in custody,the AAC Police Department wants to stress that the neighborhood still faces a threat due to the fact that there is yet another suspect that has not yet been apprehended.

All items that where found at the individual’s home have been returned to their owners, so if you have not heard from Officer Olds, unfortunately, it is unlikely that your items will be returned.

Please continue to be diligent about locking your vehicles, homes, and garages whenever you leave your home, as well as, each and every night!

Please also be advised that this threat could/usually increases in the spring and summer months.
