Loews Blow

Here’s a cautionary tale for moviegoers. At 10 p.m. on Friday, March 3, a 25-year-old woman sat down to watch a movie at the Loews Theater at 2310 Broadway, laying her purse down on the floor next to her. When she reached for her purse later, it was gone, along with her wallet and an iPhone valued at $800.

Table Trouble

One gymgoer failed to exercise much common sense recently. At 10:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 28, a 59-year-old man left his wallet, an iPhone, and $642 in cash on a table accessible to others in the Equinox gym at 344 Amsterdam Ave. while he went for a shower. When he returned to the table, his belongings were missing.

Courting Disaster

An unknown thief showed no respect for a senior citizen recently. At 1 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 28, a 96-year-old woman had placed her purse on her walker while she was visiting a food court at 59th Street and Columbus Avenue. When she next looked for her purse, it was gone, along with her wallet containing a full complement of cards, including a MasterCard and her Social Security card.

Backpack Lack

At 3 p.m. on Saturday, February 11, a 62-year-old man laid down his backpack briefly while he was shopping inside the Pottery Barn at 1965 Broadway. He reached down for his backpack and discovered that someone had taken it, along with his North Face jacket and laptop inside valued at $1,400.
