LES Ice Cream Bandit Hits 3 Stores in 2 Weeks
There’s apparently an ice cream bandit on the loose.
The 7th Precinct confirms that the perp struck twice on the same day earlier this month (October 13), stealing frozen flavors from both Rite Aid on Grand Street and the Big Apple Grocery at 219 East Broadway.
The suspected thief is a 25-year-old African American male, police said.
Then last week – at 3:30am on October 24 – a man fitting this same profile stopped into the Happiness Deli at the southwest corner of Broome and Ludlow Streets. He allegedly filched a “large amount of ice cream” then fled on foot to an unknown location.
