In the East Village, Stealing a Bike While Someone is Looking
Some criminals are so brazen, they don’t care if someone is watching. And snapping photos of them.
One Boogie reader spotted the bike thief last Saturday night just south of Union Square, cutting away the security lock, and making off with the bounty.
“I had just come out of a movie at Union Square when I noticed a guy using a bar to snap a u-lock off a bike,” our tipster told us. “I started taking photos and even said to the guy, ‘You do see me taking photos of you stealing the bike right?'” Apparently, he didn’t care and proceeded to ride away in the wrong direction down 4th Avenue heading downtown.
Where is John Joseph when you need him…?
