Nice Wheels For Shoplifters

St. Bernard Sports in Inwood Village is attracting some well-heeled thieves. On July 13, a shoplifter stole a $37 T-shirt and fled in a yellow 2002 Lexus. Nine days later, someone took a $170 pair of denim shorts and got away in a silver Mercedes SUV.

UPDATE: The folks over at St. Bernard wanted me to point out that the scofflaw in the July 13 incident — who was driving a gold Lexus, not a yellow one — was arrested. I’m trying to figure out why the perp’s name is not readily available from the DPD, as so many of them usually are.

    Not to derail the story, but a 2002 Lexus (9 years old) can’t be worth too much coin in 2011. Especially a yellow one.

    As for the second report, it says the theif took 1 pair of denim shorts valued at $170! Who pays that much for shorts?
