Property Removed from Parked Car

Police remind motorists never to leave valuables in a car parked on the street. At around noon on Saturday, February 24, a 43-year-old man parked his car outside 114 W. 83rd Street. When he returned, belongings totaling $1,300 had been removed from the car although there were no signs of a break-in.

Duane Again

Apparently, some local shoplifters continue to rely on illegal means to keep drug costs under control. In the first incident, at 6:45 p.m. on Sunday, February 18, a man and a woman entered the Duane Reade store at 1889 Broadway and made off with $2,300 worth of Mucinex and other medications.

The next Saturday, a man entered the same store about 7 p.m. and took medications valued at $1,100 without paying for the items. Police continue to investigate both incidents.

YMCA Locker Break-In

As if seniors don’t have enough to be careful about when they work out. At 5:30 p.m. on Sunday, February 18, a 71-year-old man returned to his locker inside the YMCA at 5 W. 63rd Street to discover that his locker had been broken into and some of his belongings were missing, including $50 in cash and several credit cards.

Banana Split

You don’t have to travel far to find lawlessness — not when we have our own Banana Republic right here on Broadway. At 11 a.m. on Friday, February 16, a 30-year-old man entered the chain’s store at 1976 Broadway and fled with clothing valued at $1,300.
