Spade Work

Sticky-fingered criminals continued their holiday shoplifting binge. At 7 p.m. on Thursday, December 21, two men entered the Kate Spade store at 205 Columbus Avenue and made off with apparel valued at $1,788.


Apparently, one misguided citizen mistook makeup for take-up. At 2 p.m. on Thursday, December 21, a woman entered the Sephora store at 2103 Broadway and got away with $1,800 worth of cosmetics.

Sporting Bads

One shopper was most certainly not a Modell citizen. At 1:15 p.m. on Tuesday, December 19, a 45-year-old man entered the Modell’s Sporting Goods location at 348 Amsterdam Avenue and raced off with sports apparel valued at $1,800.

Out of Step

Some high-stepping heist artist turned holiday cheer to jeer. At 11 a.m. on Sunday, December 17, a 35-year-old man hung up his coat on a hook at the Steps on Broadway dance studio inside 2121 Broadway. When he next looked for his belongings he found they were gone, including a Prada coat, Tiffany key ring and a pair of Apple headphones, presenting a total value of $1,200.

Motorcycle Stolen

Unfortunately, motorcycle thieves remain on the prowl year-round. At 11 p.m. on Wednesday, December 13, a 24-year-old man parked his 2008 Honda CBR600RR motorcycle outside 180 Riverside Boulevard. When he returned for his ride later, it was missing. The machine is valued at $6,000.
