Lost soul on Fulton

There is no way to know if the thief ever got to “Thou shalt not steal,” but either way it does not appear to have led to redemption since he or she is still at large with a stolen bible.

Police say someone stole a purse containing the bible at the McDonald’s at 52 Fulton St. on Thurs., July 31 at 3 p.m. The victim, a 53-year-old woman, placed the purse next to her while she was eating, and did not notice it was missing until she got up to leave. She also lost $240, a Medicaid and other ID cards,  keys, some medications, in addition to the Good Book, which was valued at $38.


Keys given to car thief

Police say a parking lot attendant unwittingly aided a car thief who was given the keys to a new $82,000 car just after midnight on Fri., Aug 1.

The suspect, Dae Do, 20, claimed to have lost his ticket when he got the car in the early a.m. from Alliance Parking Lot at the corner of Canal and Greene Sts. He made off with a 2014 black Audi two-door car. The vehicle was damaged the next day when Do was stopped for speeding by New Jersey state troopers, who arrested him, which was first reported by DNAinfo.com.

The victim is a 45-year-old Upstate woman, who had parked the car for three days. When she returned to pick it up Friday night, she was told the car was gone.

One attendant at the scene this week said it was his first day on the job and he had not heard about the crime. Anther worker said he was on vacation when it happened and could not comment.
