Manhattan’s Office Supplies Are No Longer Safe


Four men with some serious affection for office supplies have robbed Staples stores in Manhattan at least seven times this year, according to police. The “gang typically strikes in the mid-to-late afternoon” and have stolen loot like toner, memory cards and hard drives. It’s unknown whether the four huddle and shout “That was easy!” when they finish a job, though it seems probable. [City Room/NYT]
