People Around NYU Just Leaving Their Stuff Out for Some Guy to Steal

By

In the last two months, the same thief has taken valuable things from at least seven "victims in their 20s" who were eating or otherwise chilling at NYU-adjacent establishments such as Think Coffee, the West 4th Street Starbucks, and the East 8th Street Chipotle, as well as a campus building on University place. Most of the stolen property has been "unattended" laptops and bags, WABC notes. Stealing isn't cool, but neither is making yourself an easy target.
