At a hipster store in Little Five Points, an employee said two women swiped a pair of Irregular Choice boots. The employee could recall precise details of the women's appearance, even if she didn't notice the alleged theft happening in front of her face. She said Suspect No. 1 is a heavyset woman with braided hair, tattoos on her neck, and dressed in a Victoria's Secret "I Love Pink" jogging suit. She said Suspect No. 2 is "younger, thinner, and taller," with a pierced lip and a red streak in her hair.
The employee said the women looked at the brown boots (worth $214) and then left in a hurry. Minutes later, the employee realized the boot box was empty. She believes the women stuffed the boots into their bags, matching Michael Kors purses in slightly different metallic shades.
Apparently, moments before, an eagle-eyed employee thwarted the same women at another L5P store. A clerk there said the heavyset woman tried to steal, but she "kept an eye on her and therefore was not successful."
DISC DISAGREEMENT: In the West End, a 24-year-old man with scratches on his nose "came running and screaming" from his apartment toward a police car frantically yelling that his neighbor assaulted him. (He couldn't even wait for the officer to get out of his patrol car.) The man said the guy "who sleeps on his couch" told him that his neighbor broke into his room and stole his CDs and his probation paperwork. The man said he "doesn't know the man's name who stays on my couch" but his nickname is "Shorty." The man said he called police, based on Shorty's word, and the neighbor promptly scratched him in the face.
Shorty, however, told police the man was lying. The roommate said the CDs actually belong to the neighbor, so the neighbor probably just went into their apartment to retrieve them. It gets worse. The officer ran a computer check on the scratched-nose man. Turns out, he's wanted in DeKalb County for skipping a court date on an obstruction charge.
As he was being escorted to the police car, the scratched-nose man yelled that his neighbor also changed the locks to his room. No one believed that story, either.
FOOTBALL BLITZ: A guy got bombed while watching the New York Giants game at a Midtown sports bar. Police found the man passed out in his green Cadillac just blocks from the bar at around 1:30 a.m. His parking job was bizarre: The green Caddy was parked in a tow-away zone in front of a fire hydrant, and was jutting out so the car's rear blocked traffic on Juniper Street.
Also, the engine was running and smoke was spewing from the exhaust pipe. When an officer roused the guy, he was just driving home after the game. The man said, "It's too bad the Giants lost." The police were kind enough to inform him that the Giants actually won.
The Giants win may be the only bright spot in the man's entire week. After flunking several sobriety tests, the 41-year-old went to jail on a DUI charge.
GLEE GLUM-GLUM: A wealthy glee girl has some mean friends. A college girl said she had a party for Spelman and Morehouse colleges' glee clubs at her Midtown apartment. She said she put her purse on her bed so her friends would know where to put their coats and bags. After the party was over, the girl said she found her purse tossed onto the floor — with $620 missing from her wallet.
