FUR STOLEN

Police remind the public not to leave expensive belongings unattended, even in a respectable establishment. At 8:12 p.m. on Jan. 23, a 30-year-old woman left her hooded, fur-trimmed coat on a coat rack in the Atlantic Grill at 49 West 64th St. The garment, valued at $5,200, was missing when she went to retrieve it.

Med Mad

A man entered the Duane Reade at 2025 Broadway and made off with a quantity of cold and allergy medications valued at $1,948 on the evening of Jan. 22, police said.

Sirrus Problem

As long as New Yorkers ride bicycles, even in the thick of winter, thieves will steal them. At 6 p.m. on Jan. 21, a 47-year-old man parked his Specialized Sirrus, valued at $1,200, outside 20 West 72nd St. When he came back for his ride, it was nowhere in sight.

Purse STOLEN

Leave your purse unattended, and you could leave yourself vulnerable to thieves. At 7 p.m. on Jan. 20, a 50-year-old woman laid her purse down near the bar in the Smith Restaurant at 1900 Broadway. When she next looked for the bag, it had disappeared. There were various credit cards in the purse, but at the time of the police report, no unauthorized charges had turned up.

Poor Sport

Thieves of two-wheeled vehicles in the Upper West Side seem to be on a tear in the lower 70s recently. At 2 p.m. on Jan. 19, a 37-year-old man parked his Aprilia sport motorcycle outside 160 West 71st St. The bike, valued at $4,000, was gone when he went to retrieve it.
