By Ben Fractenberg
GRAMERCY — Grand larceny is not the kind of heavy lifting Equinox has in mind for its patrons, but that's what they got this past February.
The NYPD is looking for help in identifying three suspects wanted for stealing from three separate city gyms belonging to the Equinox and New York Sports Club chains.
The first incident happened on Sunday, February 14, around 2 p.m. when a locker was broken into at the Equinox Gym on Broadway and 20th Street. The alleged thieves lifted several credit cards from gym members.
The second incident took place the following day about 3 p.m. when a locker was broken into at the New York Sports Club at 10 Irving Place. Again, several credit cards were stolen.
The third incident was on March 18 around 7:30 at the same New York Sports Club. Another locker was broken into and credit cards stolen.
