Police probe Throgs Neck roof break-ins

Authorities are investigating two Throgs Neck break-ins in which burglars tore through roofs.

Richie Chaisty, the owner of Richie's Meat Market on East Tremont, says whoever broke into his store was likely scared off by his alarm system and didn't steal anything. But they did cause damage, destroying a motion detector and phone lines.

Police say the thieves also hit a shoe store adjacent to Richie's Meat Market where the owner wasn't as fortunate. The thieves made off with sneakers and cash from the Sneaker Palace.
