Sweet Nothing

Paying more than $20 for a lollipop wasn’t the only indignity a young woman faced recently at a chain “couture” candy store. At 5 p.m. on Friday, April 21, a 22-year-old woman was treating herself to some sweets at the Sugar Factory located at 1991 Broadway when she placed her bag on the floor. The next time she looked, her bag had disappeared, along with credit cards and $110 in cash.

Get Yourself Cleaned Out

Police remind fitness enthusiasts yet again not to bring valuables or large amounts of cash to a gym, but if you do — not to leave them in an unsecured locker! At noon on Sunday, April 23, a 47-year-old man left his locker unlocked inside the YMCA at 5 West 63rd St. When he went to retrieve his property, $3,100 in cash was missing.

Big Screen Grab

Movie night proved very expensive for an area resident recently. At 7 p.m. on Friday, April 21, a 73-year-old woman was watching a film at the Loews Theater located at 1998 Broadway. When she checked her wallet, she discovered that it was gone, along with an iPhone, cash and credit cards totaling $3,000.

Legging It

One might ask if a shoplifter was motivated by greed or something else. At 4 p.m. on Friday, April 21, a 45-year-old man entered the Lululemon store at 2139 Broadway and made off with $1,200 worth of leggings.
