An employee at the Duane Reade store on the ground floor of 67 Broad St. stopped a man from trying to leave the place at 12:30 p.m. Fri. Jan. 12 without paying for $132 worth of cosmetics in a white plastic bag he was carrying, police said. The suspect, Anthony Carter, 50, was charged with burglary rather than a lesser larceny offense because he had previously signed a trespass agreement barring him from any Duane Reade location, police said.
A resident of 100 Sullivan St. told police that a collection agency phoned her shortly after 3:30 p.m. Wed. Jan. 10 demanding $2,600 for a credit card charge that she did not make. Her credit card was not missing and the collection agency told her that the account at the out-of-town store claiming the charge had been established back in 2001, police said.
