A man connected to a string of local larcenies of late was apprehended by the 7th Precinct early Sunday morning, and later put under arrest.

The unidentified California crook was nabbed after allegedly hitting Libation on Saturday evening. That job followed a week after reportedly robbing personal items from patrons at SakaMai, Hotel Chantelle, and Los Feliz. Note the trend – all establishments along Ludlow Street.

The suspect purportedly worked with a female accomplice. Apparently these two were fairly prolific. And smooth. The con worked like this: guy is dressed in flamboyant threads and starts dancing with his “girl.” Girl rubs up against another girl on the floor (ass to ass), guy pickpockets. Smooth operator.

Thanks to the trifecta of wanted posters in bars, surveillance footage, and the thiefs own boasting on Facebook, cops were able to locate him fairly easily. We are told that he was tracked to the Paramount Hotel in Times Square. These crooks just never learn to keep mum on social media.

Meanwhile, his partner in crime remains at large.

Hotel Chantelle last fell victim to larceny back in September.

The authorities are currently trying to connect the duo to other larcenies up in the 9th Precinct.
