Bag is gone without a ‘Trace’

The Brooklyn Paper

Without a Trace

A bar-hopping thief swiped a woman’s Dooney and Burke bag from a table at Trace, a Third Avenue Mexican restaurant and lounge, on Aug. 13.

The stylish victim told cops that her purse, which she left unattended at around 3:30 am at the social spot between 81st and 82nd streets, contained an iPhone, house keys and a debit card that the robber used to make a $9 purchase.

Lock down

A thief broke into a Third Avenue store overnight on Aug. 30.

The owner returned to his business, which is between 76th and 77th streets, the next morning to find the cash register and front door lock gone.

Cash car

Someone stole about $2,000 from a truck parked at Seventh Avenue on Aug. 30.

The victim told cops that he had parked his vehicle between 81st and 82nd streets around 1 pm, and the cash was gone by the time he returned two hours later.

Window shopper

A burglar nabbed $3,000 from a Third Street apartment on Aug. 30.

The previously loaded victim told cops that she left her home, which is between Fort Hamilton Parkway and 10th Avenue, around noon and returned six hours later to find her bedroom window pried open and the cash gone.

Restaurant robber

A thief stole the register out of a Third Avenue Japanese restaurant overnight on Aug. 29. The owner told cops that he closed up Dish Restaurant, a swanky place between 92nd and 93rd streets, at around 10 pm. But when he returned at 1 pm the next day, his money machine, which contained $2,500, was gone.
