Out of Truck

Here is something unusual: a man-lifting truck was itself lifted. At 9 a.m. on Dec. 15, a man-lifting truck rented from Pride Rental Equipment was locked and secured outside a job site at 185 Greenwich St. When workers next returned to the site, they discovered that the truck was missing. The stolen vehicle was a JLG Construction man-lifting truck valued at $16,000.

Ticker Take

Gym goers who leave expensive timepieces in unlocked lockers might need to exercise their brains rather than their bodies. At 5:45 p.m. on Dec. 20, a man going for a workout at the Equinox gym on Liberty Street left his silver Rolex watch in an unlocked locker. Apparently he didn’t realize the $5,000 watch was missing until the following day, when he returned to recover it but found that it had been stolen. A search of the facilities turned up nothing.

A few days later, a man left his locker open while showering following his workout at the Equinox gym located on Murray Street found that his $2,700 Cartier Ronde Solo watch gone when he returned.

Tool Crime

A rash of recent construction tool thefts continues. Early on Dec. 27, a 36-year-old man arrived at the construction site inside 233 Spring St. when he discovered that construction tools were missing from inside a makeshift storage room. The door of the room had been pried open and the man told police that more than 110 employees and vendors had access to all locations in the building. The missing tools included an impact drill, a rope grab, a laser point, hammer drills, cordless drills, impact guns, and other items. Their value was put at $3,275.
