Police: Thieves steal man’s car, then burglarize his home in cross-state crime spree

Richmond Police are looking for a bold thief and his female accomplice after a cross-state crime spree Monday.

They stole a man’s 2010 Ford Fusion in Kansas City, Kan. from the parking lot of his workplace, then drove 56 miles to Richmond, Mo. to burglarize the man’s house, Richmond Police Detective Scott Bagley said.

The man, wishing to remain anonymous, told KMBC he left his wallet and a spare key in the car at his workplace near Interstate 435 and Kaw Dr. in Kansas City, Kan.

“Honestly the first thought was a prank,” the man said. “I thought someone was just messing with me.”

He says he spent the first hours looking for his car.

But, when he checked the bank app on his phone, he started suspecting the man and his accomplice may have gone toward his house.

“Logistically,

Thieves in Their 60s Steal 20-Carat Diamond Necklace, Gucci Purse Amid Yearlong Crime Spree: NYPD

The phrase “you get better with age” appears to apply to a pair of brazen thieves who police said have hit several high-end shops in New York City for more than $140,000 worth of goods.

Authorities said they are looking for a man and a woman in their 60s who have looted six jewelry and clothing stores in midtown, the Upper East Side and Brooklyn since last February.

Authorities said they began their crime spree at Gucci inside heavily surveilled Trump Tower, with the woman stealing a purse valued at $1,250.

Since then, police said the duo allegedly stole jewelry valued in the tens of thousands of dollars, a purse from a woman’s cart in a supermarket and a religious artifact valued at $1,500 from a Jewish bookstore in Midwood, Brooklyn.

Thieves Go on Marathon Crime Spree in Westchester, Leave Trail of Cold Hot Dogs, Apple Cores and Half-Eaten Pie …

Police are searching for the burglar or burglars who targeted nearly a half-dozen businesses along the main drag of Hastings-on-Hudson in a late-night theft spree that led to the suspects eating fruit salad and uncooked English muffins at a local diner.

They took $1,000 in cash from the diner and stole a flat-screen TV — and the hot dogs — from a firehouse, but they also lifted olive oil, nibbled on apples and grabbed a lemon meringue pie that they ultimately left sitting on a trash can, according to business owners and police.

The bizarre case started Wednesday morning when the owner of the Hastings Center Restaurant called police to report that someone had broken in by shattering the window of a rear door. The register was smashed and the cash was missing, according to police. 

“The place was in shambles,” waitress Tammy Cicalo said of the restaurant. “I

Thieves wash stolen car during Sussex crime spree

A pair of burglars who took a stolen Jaguar through a car wash during a crime spree in Sussex have been jailed.

Jodie Finn, 34, of Woodthorpe Road and Antek Pryce 40, of Eastchurch in Kent were sentenced in Guildford Crown Court on Monday, August 14 after admitting to burglary and car theft.

They admitted to breaking into a house in Oxted in Surrey in February last year. Police say they were in the house for less than two minutes before driving off in the owner’s Jaguar.

Police say they then used the stolen car to commit a number of crimes across Sussex, which included making off without payment for fuel and thefts.

DC Steven Cassidy, who investigated the pair, said “These two went on a crime spree across Sussex using the car they’d taken from Surrey. When we recovered the car we found a receipt identifying that they’d

– Across five cities, police say two thieves robbed multiple convenience stores of tons of cigarettes. But it’s not just what they were stealing – it’s what they’re wearing that caught police attention: a lot of very brightly colored Tigers gear

The two thieves were caught on camera at a convenience store in Woodhaven and it’s not the only place they hit in their desire to get a nicotine fix. They’re wanted in connection with robberies at gas stationes in St. Clair Shores, Taylor, Eastpoint, and Sterling Heights this summer.

Forget the cash. Police say they’re interested in one thing and one thing only: Newport cigarettes. As many as they can get their hands on.
