Bag is gone without a ‘Trace’

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.

Cash car

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

Window shopper

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