Update: Device recovered. Police say on Tuesday morning a resident of Douglas Street reported his vehicle had been broken into. Taken from the trunk of his car was a Troxler 3440 Nuclear Dosimeter worth $7000.

  1. *** Can’t believe B. Fitzgerald is a Captain even though he has about 15 years in? A blast from his early past seemed to paint him as having trouble taking orders from minority brass and a large paper trail of write-ups and civilian complaints if in fact he’s the nephew of a retired NY Metro Chief from back in the day? *** GOOD FOR HIM ***
