Gone in a snap
A sneak thief stole almost $1,100 in cash on Sept. 15 from the 63rd Street home of a man she met on Snapchat, according to police.
After a night out, the pair arrived in a cab back at the victim’s home at 17th Avenue at 4:30 am, after the man had paid for the cab ride home at the end of a night out. Once inside, the seductress told the man to take a shower and go to the bedroom, while she made a phone call outside. After the man had been waiting for a while, he went back into the kitchen and noticed a drawer that had contained $1080 in cash was open and empty, and that his female guest had fled. Soon after, police said, she blocked his number — and likely his Snapchat.
Sliced for bling

The victim went to Maimonides Medical Center, where he was treated for his wound, according to the police report.
