A series of “park plunders” took place in Brooklyn Bridge Park in the past week according to Brooklyn Paper’s “Police Blotter.” On September 7th at about 9:00 pm, two men left their bags at the foot of Furman Street to play soccer. When they returned the bags were gone, their wallets and phones along with them.
On September 10th, two men left their bags unattended at Pier 2 to shoot some hoops. Their bags were discovered missing at 9:45 pm. Finally, a young woman who had borrowed a bike from her roomate and locked it up near Pier 5 at about 5:00 pm, returned several hours later to find the lock had been cut and the bike had vanished.
