Window Pickpocket on 108

The story below was in the Queens Ledger a week ago. Well, apparently it was reported on Fox News 5 tonight (a FoHi friend who lives on 108th just told me about it). So whoever this creep is, he’s still around. Keep your doors locked, your eyes open.

Police are looking for a young pickpocket who reached through an open window in Forest Hills and made off with a pocketbook. Police say the suspect, a male in his late teens or early twenties, reached into 65-10 108th Street and snatched a pocketbook. He later tried to use one of several credit and debit cards in the wallet, and was captured on a video surveillance camera (see photo).
Anyone with any information on the young robber’s identity should call Crimestoppers at (800) 577-TIPS.

Fri. update: Today’s NY Post has a blurb on this too.
