Swipe Left for Larceny: Albany Police Hunt Down Valentine’s Day Basket Snatcher

February 13, 2024

In an event that might redefine petty theft, the Albany Police Department finds itself in the unusual position of seeking assistance to catch a Valentine’s Day bandit. Yes, you read that right. It seems Cupid’s arrow has missed its mark, leading one individual down a path not of love, but of larceny.

The incident, which unfolded around 6 p.m. on February 12, involved the theft of a Valentine’s Day basket from an address on Slappey Blvd.

The suspect, whose romantic escapades now include a brush with the law, was last seen making a less-than-dramatic getaway in a black Camry. Complicating the plot, he was not alone; three other individuals were in the car, perhaps accomplices in this heartless heist or merely unwitting participants in a misguided adventure.

The Albany Police Department, not typically in the business of chasing down stolen tokens of affection, has issued a plea for the public’s assistance. They’re asking anyone with information on the suspect, who remains as elusive as a good Valentine’s Day reservation, to come forward.

Those in the know are encouraged to dial 229-431-2100, to help the police provide the criminal with some new Valentine’s Day jewelry as part of cuffing season.
