Petty Theft

Fashion Week in New York Experiences Pickpocketers

Guard your Chanel! Some petty thieves have found exciting opportunities at New York Fashion Week. Amidst the crowding and bustling of the fast-paced, week-long event, a photographer and an assistant were pickpocketed during Michael Kors’ show on Tuesday, according to Women’s Wear Daily. A credit card, cash, and a MetroCard were allegedly among the stolen items. The WWD reporter was not surprised considering “scores of well-dressed editors have been tromping around all week.”
