Crook is caught on video tape

By Tom Tracy

This guy’s brazen, brave, bold and…bald. A chrome-domed crook is being sought for a recent theft at the Cobble Hill Health Center. Armed with surveillance photos that snapped up every step he made — from his jimmying open an office door to peering out from behind a soda machine to make sure the coast was clear – cops are combing the area for the husky, sticky-fingered thief who made off with a laptop computer, as well as a number of personal items that belonged to an employee. Police said that the thief entered the center, located on Henry Street between Warren and Congress streets, at about 11:30 a.m. on January 27. He was spotted wandering the halls and then, when no one was looking — save for the video camera – he forced open an office door. A few moments later, he was seen exiting the office with the laptop computer that he had stolen. He had apparently hidden the computer in a bag that he had also stolen. The thief was last seen casually sauntering out of the building with his newly acquired loot under his arm, police said. Cops are asking anyone with information regarding this man’s whereabouts to come forward. Calls can be made to Detective Edwin Cesario at (718) 834-3221. All calls will be kept confidential.
