LOST PROPERTY: Somebody ran off with jogger’s stuff | Never leave your belongings unattended, unless you don’t particularly care for them. On Tues., Dec. 12 at 3 p.m., a 39-year-old man left his bag on a jogging path at the corner of 12th Ave. and W. 26th St. When he returned, the bag was not where he left it. It was a black JanSport bag with a shaving kit, slacks, and pills inside. The total value of the property is $280.

PETIT LARCENY: ‘Sneaky’ shoe thief | A 31-year-old man placed his sneakers outside of his apartment door on the floor in his hallway — and when he returned, they were gone. The incident happened on the 200 block of W. 19th St. on Tues., Nov. 28 at 6:30 p.m. The victim valued his green Allbirds sneakers at $95.

PETIT LARCENY: Sticky fingers go for gum | At 2:40 p.m. on Fri., Dec. 15, a  32-year-old man walked into CVS (272 Eighth Ave., btw.

IDENTITY THEFT: Big bill for bad calls | ’Tis the season for identity theft. A man received a collections letter in the mail from North Shore Agency on Thurs., Dec. 7 at 12 p.m. The letter indicated he had a bill of $3,115.73 owed to Verizon Wireless. The victim, 41, who lives on the 400 block of W. 24th St., realized that an unknown person opened a Verizon account in his name in Los Angeles, CA. He is not at any financial loss at the time.

LOST PROPERTY: Shutterbug’s sorrow | A man left his belongings on the corner of Eighth Ave. and W. 20th St. on Sat., Dec. 16 at 1:30 p.m. When he realized he left his items on the sidewalk and went back to look for them, he could not find them.

The 48-year-old victim does not feel that he is the victim of a crime.
