At least the thief had style.
Someone swiped a half-dozen pairs of Chanel sunglasses from an optician on Smith Street on April 10, police said.
The thief wandered into the store, at Union Street, around 2 pm, pretending to be a customer. Suddenly, he reached into a display case and snatched up six pairs of designer shades and quickly ducked out the door.
Police have help from a security video camera, which recorded the entire crime.
Police are hunting for the thief who stole $20,000 from a Van Brunt Street restaurant on April 9.
The cash, along with receipts and register reports, disappeared from the eatery near Dikeman Street between 1 am and 11 am. An employee had found a side door open.
The door, which is always secured, was missing its padlock. Several employees have keys to the lock, the owner acknowledged.
Thieves snatched an array of power tools — valued at $22,700 — from a Columbia Street construction site, police said.
The burglars clipped the lock at the site, near Kane Street, between 5 pm on April 7 and 8 am on April 9, then removed the tools and replaced the padlock with a different lock.
The stolen items included saws and blades, a generator and a gas-powered tamping device, valued at $12,000.
