Jewel thief

Some crook swiped a woman’s jewelry and computer from her Lafayette Avenue apartment on Jan. 29, police said.

The woman told police she left her home near Carlton Avenue at about 11:30 am, and when she got back at 7 pm noticed her front door lock was open, along with her cabinets and jewelry, which had an estimated $23,100 worth of stuff missing, according to authorities.

The jerk also stole her Mac laptop, officials said.

Tower terror

A punk stole a computer tower from the computer room at a Saint James Place university sometime between Jan. 29 and Feb. 2, police said.

A faculty member told authorities some lout ran off with the Apple Mac Pro tower from the computer room between Clifton Place and Lafayette Avenue, according to authorities.

Bad parking spot

A nogoodnik swiped a woman’s wallet from inside her car parked on Saint Felix Street on Jan. 29, police said.

The woman told police she had parked her four-wheeler between DeKalb Avenue and Fulton Street at 1 am, and when she returned at 11 am, saw her driver’s-side door was open, along with the glove compartment, and her pricey Louis Vuitton wallet with four credit cards and $250 inside it was gone, officials said.

Blink of an eye

Some malefactor stole a woman’s credit cards and charged more than $1,000 on it at University Plaza on Jan. 31, police said.

The woman told police she got an alert from the credit card company that some baddie made a purchase on her American Express card sometime between 1 and 5 pm near DeKalb Avenue.

The woman then checked her wallet and saw four credit and debit cards were gone, and the good-for-nothing racked up $1,243 in charges on them, police said.

Reasonable discourse

Joe from Clinton Hill says:
"Her front door lock was open, along with her cabinets and jewelry, which had an estimated $23,100 worth of stuff missing, according to authorities."

And "A punk stole a computer tower from the computer room at a Saint James Place university sometime between Jan. 29 and Feb. 2, police said."

For crying out loud, does anybody proofread this paper? Or are the reporters just illiterate? BTW, the "Saint James Place University" is the Pratt Institute Architecture School; and the prior quote is just a mess, pure and simple. Learn to write, folks!
