Crime Watch: Beware of Teens with Clipboards
Police seek group of youthful robbers
During the early afternoon of Wednesday, Dec. 28, three teenage men carrying clipboards illegally entered a Soho apartment building on Thompson Street and allegedly stole a laptop, say police. The teenagers are believed to have found a way into the building, a classic walk-up between Houston and Prince streets, and proceeded to knock on the doors of several units until coming upon one that was unlocked. Police say they entered the apartment and appearently left a few minutes later. When the owner returned to his residence, he realized that his MacBook was missing.
Police are asking for the public's help in identifying the teens. They are described as between the ages of 14 and 17, roughly 145 to 175 pounds. Anyone with information on these suspects are asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline, 800-577-TIPS.
