Some lowlife ransacked the front yard of a woman’s Second Street home, taking lawn statues and planters on Nov. 11.
The victim told police that she left her home between Sixth and Seventh avenues at 6 pm, off to visit her mother and not to return for another two days.
When she did come back, she found that a lock securing the gate into her yard had been busted and that three statues, one of which was originally worth $7,350, had been nabbed, along with more than $500 in plants and planters, according to police.

A lucky looter hit pay-dirt when he snatched a woman’s purse — containing $50,000 — off her stroller from inside a Seventh Avenue shop on Nov. 12.

The crook had about 15 minutes to swipe the bag, and imagine his surprise when upon discovering that the designer purse within — itself worth $5,000 — contained 50 grand in 100-dollar bills, according to police.
