Money bagged

A street weasel swiped $30,000 out of a man’s pocket on W. 16th Street on March 17. 

The victim told police that the brigand grabbed him from behind near Mermaid Avenue at around 11 pm and went through his pocket — stealing the cash and fleeing towards the beach.

Platinum hit

A mechanical-minded thief snagged the catalytic converter from a car parked on Bay 48th Street on March 18. 

The victim told police that she returned to her car at the intersection of Shore Parkway at around 5 pm and noticed it was making a loud sound, and a mechanic told her the platinum car part was missing. 

Lootin’ Louie
