Stolen Bicycles

Unfortunately, now that bike riding season is almost upon us, so is bike stealing season. In a recent incident, at noon on March 27, a 79-year-old man parked his $3,000 Cannondale outside the Cottage restaurant at 360 Amsterdam Avenue. When he returned his two-wheeler was gone.

Then at 11:15 a.m. on Saturday, April 7, a 55-year-old man parked his bike outside 5 West 63rd Street and returned later only to find it missing as well. That bike was a Nashbar valued at $1,400.

Cell Knell

With so many shoplifters at work, one AT&T store must wish their mobile phones weren’t quite as mobile. At 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 5, a 30-year-old man entered the AT&T store at 2066 Broadway and made off with two phones valued at $1,700.

Strip Rip

Perhaps one shoplifter is an exceptionally heavy consumer of teeth-staining coffee or cigarettes. At 1:50 p.m. on Thursday, April 5, a 25-year-old man entered the Duane Reade store at 2025 Broadway and shoplifted $1,500 worth of Crest Whitening Strips.

Missing Purse

If you want to keep your purse, don’t keep it on the back of your chair in a restaurant! At 7 p.m. on Saturday, March 31, a 78-year-old woman hung her purse on the back of her chair in La Mirabelle restaurant located at 102 West 86th Street. When she next reached for her clutch, it was missing along with its contents, which included a wallet and credit cards.
