A lowlife parent stole $14,550 worth of a woman’s jewelry from her Fourth Avenue home when they were at the apartment for a birthday party for the woman’s 6-year-old son on Nov. 5, according to police. The victim reported to police on Nov. 17 that she had about ten people over to her home for the party between 79th and 80th streets. She didn’t know the parents before the soiree, she told police, and her jewelry box and bedroom door were unlocked — even though the latter was closed. When she opened the box to pick out jewelry to wear nearly two weeks later, she noticed the jewels were missing, she told police.

The man ordered the camera on Nov. 5, and the poser signed for the package at the home between 11th and 12th avenues four days later, just before 2 pm — a sneaky move the original purchaser discovered after he never received the package and then tracked it online to figure out what had happened.
