Victimizing vendors

Police arrested a man on Sept. 7 who had been stealing money from vendors at the Seventh Avenue small business where he worked.

The man’s employer told police around 2 pm on Sept. 14 that he had discovered his employee had been adding fraudulent amounts to invoices he sent to vendors on behalf of the business — located at 65th Street — causing them to pay extra cash, which he then pocketed. The employer said he had discovered that the man had been swindling vendors for approximately six months, and that he illegally pocketed nearly $1,975.

Window shopping

A crook broke into a man’s work truck parked on Fifth Avenue on Sept. 12 and stole nearly $1,200, a Social Security card, three credit cards, and a wallet.

The perp committed the crime after the driver parked his 2007 Isuzu NPR outside a storefront at Senator Street, just after 4 pm. Police found that the thief had punched in the driver’s front side lock to force entry into the truck, where he stole the items. Police are looking for surveillance footage in the area, according to the report.
