Two common thieves are on the NYPD’s -- and now the public’s -- radar and we imagine they’ll be nabbed pretty soon.
You see, these guys did what is not terribly uncommon in New York, especially for those of us without doormen or security.
It’s why we’ll often put a Post-It up asking for any packages to be left with the super.
The pair, pictured in surveillance pictures released by cops, took two FedEx boxes from the lobby of 429 W. 46th Street earlier this week.
Midtown North Cops are publicizing the petit larceny for this reason: Inside one of the boxes was an expensive new breast pump worth several hundred dollars that a mom of two premature babies had ordered.
In the other box? Gifts for the newborn twins, Deirdre and Declan Foley, who CBS2 said came into the world two months early and weighed less than 3 pounds.
Their parents were stunned and outraged.
“They’re stealing from two preemie babies, which is just like the lowest of the low,” mom Alison Foley told CBS.
“Who has the moral fiber to really literally take milk out of the mouths of babes?” dad Patrick Foley asked. “This is a breast pump that they need to survive.”
The couple purchased a new pump but are hoping cops catch the crooks.
