Brandishing a Cell Phone
Just before noon on Thursday, June 13, an employee at a boutique on Greene Street reported that three men had entered the store and removed several handbags from store shelves. The employee approached the men and asked what they were doing. One of the men said, "Shut the f*ck up -- I have a gun!" He removed a black cell phone from his pocket and menaced the employee with the phone as if it were a weapon. The three men then fled on foot and got into a white Chevy Impala with Pennsylvania plates 3FF5974, speeding off westbound on Prince Street. Police searched the area but were unable to locate the bag burglars. Video of the incident is available. The bags stolen included a Jason Wu leather handbag valued at $2,700; two Lanvin leather handbags totaling $4,100; a Lanvin python handbag valued at $2,700; three Victoria Beckham leather handbags totaling $6,100; three Celine python bags totaling $13,300; a Proenza Schouler python bag costing $2,300; a Balenciaga leather bag worth $1,300; and two Givenchy leather bags totaling$4,300. The total handbag haul amounted to $36,800.
