Nearly $3K in Burberry Scarves Stolen From SoHo Shop, Police Say
SOHO — A pair of thieves grabbed $2,760 worth of Burberry scarves from the British designer’s SoHo shop last week, police said.
One of the shoplifters browsed through the 131 Spring St. store at about 3 p.m. Nov. 16, looking at various items before selecting six scarves and laying them on top of a display case, a store employee told police.
Then, the other shoplifter walked past the chosen goods — four “check” scarves, worth $1,980, and two “giant, icon” scarves totaling $780 — and quickly pulled them into two large, white shopping bags, before heading out the store, police said.
The crime was captured on video surveillance, police said.
Police were still investigating the crime as of Wednesday.
Other notable crimes in this week's NYPD blotter in the 1st Precinct include:
