Jessica Coco crime saga: another attempted break-in
A group of men distributing flyers advocating “vote yes” to “protect” rent control was the cover for another break-in attempt into Jessica Coco’s apartment late Saturday night. (Voting yes on the ballot question Tuesday removes rent control from homes of four units or less and would institute de facto vacancy control on others.)
A friend was in the apartment and was present when the lower lock was opened with a key followed by an attempt to pop the door off the upper deadbolt lock. The friend began yelling at the unknown men in the hallway they better not enter or there would be violence.
The incident follows a period of seeming calm since the publicity of alleged abuses: intimidation, harassment, vandalism to Coco’s vehicle, repeated break-ins and burglaries and death threats began after Coco says she was suspected of opposing Vision 20/20 a massive redevelopment of the HHA.
Executive Director Carmelo Garcia and one of his controlled “tenant representatives” have previously said none of the incidents ever occurred – this with out any inquiry or investigation. MSV confirmed some of Coco’s previous account in an early October story.
The latest incident was reported late Saturday night to the Hoboken Police Department who responded to the location. They urged Coco to report the break-in to “management.”
|Carmelo Garcia (c), curent Executive Director of the Hoboken Housing Authority pictured here in April at the
campaign kickoff for Ruben Ramos with council slate candidate Laura Miani denies any alleged harassment, intimidation,
break-ins and death threats to resident Jessica Coco. HPD responded last night to the latest incident where a witness
said the bottom lock was opened with a key before an attempt to pry the door lock open. Who could do that?
Talking Ed Note: State Senator and Union City Mayor Brian Stack who selected Carmelo Garcia to be an Assemblyman on the county slate for the November election makes visits into Hoboken but only to the Hoboken Housing Authority. Both Tim Occhipinti and Ruben Ramos support Carmelo Garcia’s massive redevelopment plan Vision 20/20 never vetted by City Hall and Hoboken residents.
As for Mr. Carmelo, the time is neigh.
