Violent Shoplifting

Three men were arrested on robbery charges following a late-night shoplifting incident at Jubilee Market Place on February 8, police said. The three entered the John Street store and began taking energy drinks from a refrigerator, placing them into a white bin, according to police. When the trio of shoplifters, later identified by police as Jonathan Lopez, 25, Bilal Johnson, 20, and Steven Sparrow, 25, tried to leave the store without paying, two store employees intervened and held one of the men back while two others of the trio fled. The third was taken to Bellevue Hospital for treatment, police said. Lopez, Johnson and Sparrow were arrested on February 9 and 10.

Exchange Student Robbed

A 26-year-old man drinking with three others unknown to him in an unspecified downtown bar left the saloon only to wake up at the Fulton Street subway station without his coat, money or credit cards early on Tuesday, February 6. He told police he believed he had been drugged but refused medical attention when he arrived at the First Precinct station house to file a report. The belongings stolen included his coat, valued at $180; $250 in cash; a cellphone; and his apartment keys.

Motorcycle Disappears

A 8 p.m. on Monday, January 15, a 41-year-old man parked his 2007 KTM Super Duke in front of 140 Thompson Street, securing the back wheel to a metal fence with a chain. The bike was still locked and chained when he checked it at 8 a.m. on February 2, but was gone when he returned on February 8. A search of the neighborhood turned up nothing. The stolen bike is valued at $7,000.

Camera Lens Lifted

At 2 p.m. on Tuesday, February 6, a 32-year-old Brooklyn woman left a bag containing a camera lens under a table at the Cadillac House on Hudson Street. She left the equipment unattended for about 15 minutes, before returning her Canon lens, valued at $2,190, missing.
