SOHO — Electronics, designer wares and diabetes medication worth thousands of dollars were stolen from two cars parked next to each other on Charlton Street last weekend, police said.
The cars, parked in front of 98 Charlton St. and 102 Charlton St., were likely targeted by the same thief between midnight and 3 a.m. on Oct. 12, police said.
The owner of the car parked at 98 Charlton St. told police that she and her friend returned at about 3:15 a.m. after going to a bar and found the passenger side window broken and one of the women’s handbags stolen. The Steve Madden bag contained the 28-year-old's $450 Ray–Ban sunglasses, iPhone 5 and $200 Louis Vuitton wallet.
Another set of friends returned to their Honda Accord at about 3 a.m. to also find a window broken, after they'd attended Comic Con. A $165 Analog Horror bag containing $1,500 worth of diabetes medication, an iPad and several books were swiped from the car.
Police were still investigating the thefts as of Wednesday.
