Bracelet robbery

Two lowlifes threw a man to the ground and stole a diamond bracelet from him on E. 29th Street on Jan. 11.

The 30-year-old man told police that he was near Avenue T at 10:20 pm when two people approached him. They threw him to the ground and took a box with a diamond bracelet in it from the front pocket of his jacket, police reported.

They then fled in a large white Lexus sport utility vehicle on E. 29th Street towards Avenue S, according to the man.

Tool burglary

A sneak took several mechanical tools from a construction site on Avenue P on Jan. 10.

The victim said he left his tools at his job site near E. 18th Street on Jan. 10 at 5 pm, and when he returned at 7:30 am the next day, he noticed screw guns, a laser, batteries, a fastener, a saw, and a grinder were missing.

Police said the thief may have entered the building on the site from the back.

Cash theft

A no-goodnik stole thousands in cash off a man in his truck on Avenue U. on Jan. 13.

Officers say the victim was in his truck near E. 17th Street at 3:40 pm when a man approached and told him to check out the back of the truck. When the victim returned to the front of the truck five minutes later, he noticed someone had taken $3,500 from the driver’s cabin, according to the man.

Police are looking into a surveillance camera on Avenue U that reportedly caught the incident.
