A sticky-fingered clothes hound made off with more than $2,400 in designer duds when he found a suitcase sitting on a Red Hook stoop, police said.

The 45-year-old victim was on her way out of town on March 4. Around 2:20 pm, she left her suitcase on the stoop of her Van Dyke Street home and ducked back inside for another bag. When she emerged again from the house, near Richards Street, the bag was gone.

But a neighbor saw a stranger hauling the high-end fashions — including a pair of $800 boots, a $1,500 suit, several blouses and a slip — out of the suitcase and stuffing them into a shopping cart. The victim declined to press charges, police said.
