A person we’ll call “X” writes today at 6:09 p.m.:

Hi Miss Heather. I am a lurker on New York Shitty and I pay special attention to your posts about crimes in the area.

I was jogging near the Williamsburg Bridge today and I spotted this guy:

He was unmistakable. I remembered him from your post a few weeks back. The yellow bike with the blue seat was the first thing I noticed. I trailed him for a little while and watched him pull on doors, checking if they were open. We made eye contact and that’s when I stopped and called the police.

I met with the police and showed them the guy’s picture and the posting and then I kept on running. Hope they get this punk today!

First off I want to thank X for contacting the police. Well done! Although I sincerely hope he/she made a spot-on identification and the police caught this fellow, the fact of the matter is someone trying doors (so as to find one which is unlocked) is bad news. I have said it before and I’ll say it again: please, please make sure your front doors are locked/secured. Do not simply “buzz” people into your building without discerning who he/she is— or better yet: meet/greet anyone desiring access to your building in person. Ask questions. If you see anything amiss, say something to the police. STAT.

Somewhere on Havemeyer Street there is a 99 Cent Store with a furry helper protecting panties against theft— or so she claims!

Found On The Southside: Wheelchair

I happened upon this missive today at Wythe Avenue and South 4th Street. Truth be told, I am at a loss. In order for a wheelchair to be found one would presume it had to be lost/misplaced. Then again I have lived in north Brooklyn long enough to know better than to dwell too deeply on such matter. If anyone is missing a wheelchair (or needs one, I suppose) this good Samaritan has it and was kind enough to post flyers.
