The security footage above shows a man trying to get into an art gallery at 153 Stanton Street this past Sunday night. He eventually succeeded in breaking in and took some electronics and a bike, the police say.
The gallery’s owner, who asked that we not use his name or that of the gallery, didn’t paint a pretty picture of the scene: he told us that after the hooded hoodlum “crashed through the door” he helped himself to two computers and a bike, making off with some $2,000 in goods. But the heist was a “sloppy attempt” given that he could’ve also pinched some projectors, cameras, and art.
If you recognize this artful dodger, give the folks at the 7th Precinct a call.
