The cops say this sellout is a crime.
A woman who fled her Chinatown apartment after a fire in April got a nasty surprise the next day – a pair of thieves used her credit card to buy two blenders, according to the NYPD.
The 24-year-old victim was forced out of her apartment on Elizabeth and Canal Sts. on April 15 after a fire displaced everyone in his apartment building. Cops couldn’t tell if it was her apartment that caught fire.
The victim left his wallet behind – and on April 16, a man and a woman allegedly used his card to buy two professional Ninja blenders worth $402 at Best Buy on Gateway Drive in East New York.
Police released video of the duo at checkout. Footage showed the man dragging the two mixers out of the store.
The man has a fair complexion, brown hair, brown eyes, a full beard and a fine build. He was wearing blue jeans, a gray hoodie and beige work boots, cops said. The woman has long dark hair with a slim build and was wearing blue jeans, black sneakers and a black hoodie, police said.
Cops are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS.
