A couple of trusting souls who had a tendency to leave their apartment door unlocked in the 15900 block of NE 191st Street pushed their luck one too many times: A larcener with laundry on his mind shanghaied some soap powder along with some rings located just inside the door. The lathered-up lifter left no other clues behind.
Even Cleaner Getaway
A fast food patron in the 17400 block of NE 175th Street was no match for a wily bike thief who waited until his mark was seated and dining to make a quick getaway with the victim’s mode of transportation. The victim gave chase but had to watch in frustration as the bike nabber and his Beloved disappeared into the sunset.
No, These Aren’t Giveaways
A business in the 19700 block of 144th Avenue NE was victimized by a car parts aficionado who treated the merchandise displayed outside like his personal smorgasbord. The menu that night included radiators and other appurtenances normally reserved for paying customers. There were no clues or crumbs left behind.
But … Someone Took My Gym Bag
Like the proverbial pushover whose dog ate the homework, a victim in the 16100 block of 125th Place NE has a great excuse for not working out: His gym bag was taken from the unlocked vehicle parked in the driveway. Looks like this worked out for the thief without even breaking a sweat.
