Burglar walked in through open front doors

BY THE VILLAGE SUN | Greenwich Village residents who left their apartment front doors unlocked recently got burned by a couple of burglaries. Police say the same suspect was behind both incidents.

Cops said that on Wed., Nov. 9, around just before 4 p.m., a  man entered a residential apartment at W. 13th Street and Seventh Avenue through an unlocked apartment door. Once inside, he removed a laptop computer, a wallet containing credit cards and various items.

He fled on foot, later reportedly using the 34-year-old male victim’s credit card at a smoke shop at 200 E. 116 St. The stolen items totaled around $1,500.
