Jeans Jones

Police collared a shoplifter with an apparent liking for Gap jeans after the thief returned for an encore visit. At 6 p.m. on Sunday, February 4, a 32-year-old man entered the Gap store at 1988 Broadway and made off with two stacks of jeans worth a total of $1,398. Just two days later, at 1:50 p.m. on the following Tuesday, the same man returned to the outlet and grabbed 32 pairs of jeans valued, worth $1,350. Authorities, though, were able to detain the man and he was arrested on grand larceny charges.

Fit to be Tied

A senior learned the hard way why you should NEVER bring more than workout clothes to a gym. At 2:30 p.m. on Friday, February 2, a 69-year-old man returned to his locker in the New York Sports Club located at 23 West 73rd Street to find that someone had taken a number of his belongings, including credit cards and checks. He put his losses at $3,026.

Burn of the Century

After getting hit by shoplifters twice in one day, it would appear that a local Century 21 store needs to beef up their security. At 3 p.m. on Thursday, February 1, a 36-year-old man went into the store located at 1972 Broadway and snatched clothing valued at $1,010. Then at 8 p.m. the same day, a 26-year-old man entered the same location and helped himself to $2,500 worth of clothes.
