FINANCIAL DISTRICT — A man quickly filled a large shopping bag with a total of more than 200 razors, bottles of shampoo and cosmetics, then fled a Broadway Duane Reade without paying, police said.
The thief stuffed the bag with $2,513 worth of products, including Revlon makeup, Gillette razors and 25 bottles of shampoo, within 15 minutes on Dec. 17, at about 7:30 p.m. He then ran out of the 250 Broadway store and headed into the Park Place subway stop, which sits right next to the Duane Reade.
The location has been a regular target for shoplifters, police have said. A week before this theft, more than $1,500 worth of razors were stolen from the store.
Police were still investigating the incident.
