A man shoplifted a fur coat from a clothing boutique on Mercer Street. At 1:40 PM on Wednesday, November 20, a man entered the store and looked around as if he was shopping. He examined and removed a tan fur coat hanging on a rack and, when no one was looking, left the store with the coat without paying for it. Video of the incident is available. Upon exiting the store, the man turned left on Mercer and headed northbound. The store had reported receiving suspicious calls from the phone number 646-489-9286 during the shoplifting incident. The stolen coat was a tan Marc Jacobs fox fur coat valued at $11,000.
