Suede in the Shade

Which came first: the high price of designer clothing or the high rate at which it gets shoplifted? At 4:44 p.m. on Friday, August 25, a 30-year-old man walked into the Ermenegildo Zegna store at Brookfield Place, 200 Vesey St., grabbed two pricey suede jackets, and fled northbound on West Street. The two jackets are valued at $11,445.

Property taken

A man eating outdoors couldn’t even throw out his trash before someone grabbed his stuff. At 11:40 a.m. on Wednesday, August 23, a 50-year-old man from Bridgeport, Conn., sat down to eat lunch in front of 32 Sixth Ave. After eating he got up to throw his trash in a garbage can, and when he turned around his MacBook Air laptop, prescription eyeglasses, earbuds and backpack were gone. He estimated his stolen property at $2,190.

Handbag, contents stolen

You shouldn’t leave your stuff unattended in a nightclub for a minute, much less 10. A 23-year-old woman from Austria told police her handbag and its contents were taken while she was inside the Mailroom Bar at 110 Wall St. late on Thursday, August 24. Taken along with the bag were an iPhone 7, Bose headphones, sunglasses, and her wallet. The value of the stolen goods was put at $2,300.

Convenience store theft

Apparently, a convenience store proved a convenient refuge for two thieves. At 2:15 p.m. on Thursday, August 24, a 40-year-old woman was walking in front of 311 Broadway when two men removed some belongings from her bag and ran into a nearby 7-Eleven store. The items stolen included a Samsung S7, plus an ID card and debit card, presenting a total value stolen of $650.

car broken into

Police again remind motorists never to leave valuable items in a car parked on the street. At 11 p.m. on Saturday, August 26, a 27-year-old man from Paramus, N.J., parked his car in front of 129 West Houston St. When he returned at 6:40 a.m. on the 28th, the passenger’s-side front door window had been shattered and several of his belongings were missing, including an Apple laptop, a radar detector, a black gym bag and other items. In all, the missing property was valued at $1,590.
