Cops: Car Break-in at Speakeasy Nightclub
The victim was only inside the bar for about an hour, but that was long enough for a thief to bust in his passenger side window and take off with a red backpack.
A Speak Easy Nightclub patron saw the tab for his evening out jump by $400 after a thief broke the man's truck window and made off with a backpack full of goodies.
The 40-year-old Bayside man told Bayside police sometime between 6:15 and 7:39 p.m. Nov. 12, someone broke into the front passenger side window of his truck and stole a red backpack, according to the police report. He said it was sitting on the front passenger seat and had a few personal items inside, including an umbrella, pocket knife and a thermometer for a total value of $100.
