Two teenage thugs were arrested after stealing a cell phone from a man on Columbia Heights between Orange and Cranberry streets. The teens, ages 14 and 16, approached the 22-year-old and forced him to hand over his cell phone at 1:30 p.m. on December 3.

A thief made off with $600 in baby products after breaking into an apartment vestibule on Pierrepont Street between Willow and Hicks streets on December 3. The thief broke the window of the front door and stole the products, including a $200 breast pump.

A crook stole more than $3,000 in lottery tickets from a deli on Livingston Street near Hoyt Street. The man entered the deli just after 5 p.m. on Dec 4, asked the cashier for $3,272 in lottery tickets, and ran off before paying.

A man was arrested after throwing a bottle of perfume at a cashier at the Fulton Mall Macy’s on December 5 around 1 p.m. The attack caused a laceration on the cashier’s lip.

    “…and asked the cashier for $3,272 in lottery tickets…” how does anybody come up with that number “this is a stick-up, hand over $3,272 of take fives now!”

    The real question is….did he win?

  • Eason

    Hey if he wins then we know who did it!

    What, nothing on The Slapper?

    Not to mention the dumb-ass clerk who actually gave the guy $3,272 in lottery tickets, without asking for money up front… Hummm… sounds like it could be an inside job???

    I bought a quick-pick lotto ticket today. $10 bucks and it took about a minute for the machine to spit out the tickets. How the hell long was that guy standing there to get $3,272 in tickets? Arch, I think you’re on to something.

    I don’t mean to downplay it, but the second incident, involving the baby products taken from the vestibule, sounds like a burglary, not a robbery.

  • Arch Stanton

    Good point nabeguy, even at 15 seconds per $10 it would take almost an hour and a half to print out that many tickets… if I was a clerk, I’d be thinking about counting the guys cash whilst the printer buzzed away….
