Fleeced coat

A thief played “finders-keepers” with a wallet that had been left in the fitting room of a popular coat retailer on Atlantic Avenue.

The victim, a City Tech student, walked out of Burlington Coat Factory on Dec. 29, and realized that she’d left her billfold behind.

She returned to claim it at 8:15 pm, but the dressing room attendant told her that she’d given the wallet to a different woman, who’d described it and claimed it as her own.

The wallet contained $100 and credit cards.

A very similar crime occurred at the same store three days earlier.

Where: 625 Atlantic Ave.
