High School Low

At 2 p.m. on Sunday, September 24, a 17-year-old male youth left his property in a locker inside the York Prep School at 40 West 68th Street. When he returned, he discovered that his Mac Air and a pair of earbuds were missing, a total value of $1,800.

Purse Snatch

A visit to Starbucks proved quite costly for a young woman. At 3:41 p.m. on Monday, October 2, a 31-year-old woman laid her purse down on top of a stool in the Starbucks at 2045 Broadway. When she next looked, her purse was gone. Its contents included a wallet, keys, cash, and more, totaling $180.

Dispiriting Episode

Local liquor store managers probably needed a stiff drink after getting stiffed on payments. On Friday, September 29, the management of the Renaissance Fine Wine and Spirits store at 161 Freedom Place discovered that they had received four fraudulent checks amounting to $4,951.

Forged Checks

Another area resident became a victim of ID theft. At 3 p.m. on Thursday, September 28, a 56-year-old woman living at 115 Central Park West found out that someone had written forged checks totaling $3,100 against her bank account.

Implement Incident

A burglar was apparently very much in need of kitchen utensils. At 8 a.m. on Monday, September 25, personnel at 62 West 71st Street saw that someone had broken a window overnight and taken knives, spoons and a coffee pot worth a total of $20.
