Smile, You’re on Camera

Last Monday, April 1, a store security agent at a ritzy, Madison Ave. clothing store was watching camera footage of a man as he took a jacket off a rack, put it on top of his personal jacket and then proceeded to walk around the store. Police said the agent continued to follow the man around the store and alerted another agent to stop the man before he could leave the store’s 60th Street exit without paying for the merchandise he was wearing. Apparently, the man had good taste. The jacket was a Junya Wanatabe, valued at $1,015 and the security agents also recovered a blue, Azzuro belt, valued at $310. Police later arrested the suspect, a white man, age 78, and charged him with grand larceny.
