Caught ya

A clumsy thief tried to snatch some fancy clothes from a store on Fifth Avenue on Oct. 12.

The owner of Malik Sportswear near 13th Street told cops that he spotted a crook — and three partners — sneaking out of the shop at 4:05 pm with $1,600 worth of True Religion jeans, a pair of $420 Nudie Jeans and a bunch of Polo shirts.

The owner then tried to stop the thieves, but one of the thugs shoved him and ran out of the store. That’s when the gutsy merchant chased him down — and then held the thug near 12th Street until cops came.

Police arrested a 22-year-old suspect the same day. They are now hunting three more 25-year-old alleged crooks.

Where: 511 Fifth Ave.
