Bike Thefts

This warm September seems to have extended the season for bike robberies. In the first recent incident, which took place at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, September 9, a young woman parked her bike at 79th Street and Riverside Drive. When she came back several hours later, her two-wheeler was missing. The stolen bike was a Cannondale valued at $2,600.

In the second incident, which occurred at 10 p.m. on Thursday, September 14, a 45-year-old man locked up his bike outside 251 Central Park West. When he returned three hours later his ride was gone. The stolen bike was a VanMoof priced at $2,000.

Leggo Our Leggings!

It would seem that one shoplifter won’t be begging for leggings anytime soon. At 1:45 p.m. on Sunday, September 24, a 40-year-old woman entered the Athleta store at 216 Columbus Avenue and made off with $3,200 worth of the clingy clothing.

Over and Out

More over-the-counter medications recently made their way out the door illegally. At 2 p.m. on Friday, September 15, a man entered the CVS store at 200 West End Avenue and got away with a haul of brand-name meds including Claritin, Mucinex, and Tylenol totaling $1,400.

Coat Collar

And the good guys racked up a score as well. At 1 p.m. on Thursday, September 14, a 35-year-old woman entered the Century 21 store at 1972 Broadway and shoplifted $1,100 worth of coats. She was later arrested and charged with grand larceny.
