Police Blotter: Week of August 17, 2017

PETIT LARCENY: Sorry Snoozer’s Bolt jolt | We can’t fault anybody for falling asleep on the ride from Maryland to Manhattan — but by all means, do your snoozing in an Uber or a Lyft car, or at least in the backseat if hitchhiking. Close your eyes and saw some logs on a Bolt bus, and […]

PETIT LARCENY: Cobbly’s wobbly ticket to nowhere | This “Matthew” found his mark on Craigslist. A 48-year-old male reported to police that he had been bilked out of $200 by falling for a scam older than the Internet — perhaps even predating the telegraph. Both of those mediums of communication played their part in this torrid […]

PETIT LARCENY: Uneven exchange | In a world of online profiles and chats conducted over great distances through text messaging, it’s difficult enough to make a genuine personal connection in real time, and in a public space — but the electronic ether even found a way to foul that up. At around 4:30 a.m. on Sun., […]

PETIT LARCENY: Newport worth hundreds | The smooth taste of Menthol may have helped a certain toxic tar stick cement its status as “the second best selling cigarette brand in the United States” (unimpeachable source: Wikipedia), but we doubt this brazen thief has the lung capacity to smoke his ill-gotten gains in a single session. […]

THEFT OF SERVICES: Ride along and run away | Twin tales of fleeting passengers who put their feet to the concrete when the metal was taken off the petal stood out during our cursory perusal of potential blotter items during this week’s visit to the 10th Precinct. On Thurs., June 29 at around 10:50 p.m., the […]

PETIT LARCENY: Crime can’t be compartmentalized | A 44-year-old tourist who thought he left his valuables in a clever hiding place learned a costly lesson — thieves will leave no stone unturned in their search for something to steal. After exiting the Chelsea International Hostel (251 W. 20th St., btw. Seventh & Eighth Aves.) at around […]

LOST PROPERTY: Leaving a paper trail is key | A 56-year-old resident of 23rd St.’s W. 400 block found herself up the creek without a paddle — or at least its urban equivalent, which would be on the sidewalk without a key — when she returned to her place of residence, only to realize that her […]

PETIT LARCENY: Petula tried to warn her | “Don’t Sleep in the Subway” was a big hit for Petula Clark in the summer of 1967 — but nearly a half-century later, some straphangers still haven’t learned much from the catchy tune’s cautionary lyrics. Case in point, the unfortunate incident that unfolded in the early morning […]

CRIMINAL POSESSION OF A WEAPON: On the wrong track (gravity #1) | Perhaps it was the controlled substances found on their person — or just an understandable aversion to dingy and delay-ridden Penn Station — that caused two twitchy trespassers to bypass the ticketed method of boarding and proceed directly to Amtrak’s railroad yard at around […]

PUBLIC LEDWNESS: Sleazy Straphanger | A man is wanted for masturbating on the E train on Sun., April 30 at around 5:30 p.m., police said. According to police, the suspect was aboard a northbound E train that passed the 42nd Street-Port Authority Bus Terminal station when he sat next to a 30-year-old woman. Police said the […]
