According to police a man’s $500 Louis Vuitton wallet was allegedly stolen as he was watching a porn movie in his private viewing booth of a popular adult video store, police and store clerk said. According to the police report, the man walked into the preview booth at The Blue Store located at 206 Eighth Ave. around 5:30 p.m. last Saturday. He then placed his wallet on the chair behind him and watch the movie, according to police.
The 48 year old victim of this robbery was watching his selection of porn when suddenly someone reached into the preview booth and grabbed the wallet from the chair behind, police said.
According to the victim, he lost his Louis Vuitton wallet along with his credit cards, employee identification card and a Long Island Rail Road monthly pass worth $210 according to police. Dimingo Fernando, who works at The Blue Store told police that thefts rarely happen at the Blue store because of the shop’s extensive security.
“We have a lot of cameras, to control the garbage, but we can’t see what’s going on in the booths,” said Fernando.
Currently police officials have no immediate suspects in the case. One has to wonder how a person would sit their wallet down behind a chair in a preview booth. . Could this have been a situation where someone joined the victim in the preview booth against store policy and then proceeded to rob the man while engaging in intimate contact ?
