He topped off his haul with 26 bottles of Advil for a total of $1,100 in stolen goods, and raised his crime from petty larceny to grand larceny. Videos in the robbery have not been released. No arrests have been made.

- Five pairs of Tiffany sunglasses valued at approximately $1,545 were removed from the shelves of Sunglass Hut, 2218 Broadway (79th), at about noon on January 30th. Surveillance cameras are being reviewed for further information. No arrests have been made.
- An electric motorbike chained and locked in front of Artie’s Delicatessen (83rd) was stolen on January 25th, “in broad daylight,” according to sources.

Update: an employee at Artie’s says the stolen item was a motorbike worth $2,000 that belonged to the delivery man.
