Oct. 10, 2018 By Tara Law

Police have released video footage of a man who stole packages containing $230,000 worth of jewelry from a Long Island City apartment building.

Police say that the man went inside the lobby of a residential building near Crescent Street and 41st Avenue at around 10 a.m. on Aug. 14. The man grabbed two packages containing the jewelry and walked off in an unknown direction.

When the 26-year-old victim returned home to pick up his packages, he realized that they were gone and called the police. 

Police describe the suspect as Hispanic, and between 20 and 30 years old. He was last seen wearing a black T-shirt, blue shorts and black shoes.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).

USPS simple sucks – they are the worse entity in this country while managing a MONOPOLY. You get what you pay for. ….. don’t be cheap use Fed Ex or UPS .. your package will get there …..

I guess the cops have to report this incident while they investigate the “victim.” Yes, of course. You had $230,000 of jewelry sent in an ordinary uninsured package. Of course you did.

Was the 2 month delay in making this public because the LIC police have been focused on ticketing elderly cyclists for not fully stopping at stop signs?

Maybe you’ve never been to NYC but most people in bike lanes are people of color, often delivery people.

He should have sent it via USPS, it would have still been in transit and therefore not stolen at the final destination.

Respect for postal delivery. The privatization gangs want us to devolve to the thieving gangsterism of modern Russia, where layoffs to get your deliveries suffice.
FedEx, etc, charge far more, post office service was in the Constitution, which receives respect intermittently, for guns, etc. not crucial services, employing millions of our servants, paid justly.
Sick of gangster free marketers.
