N. Henry St.


The MPD is investigating a series of thefts at a downtown nightclub where women have had wallets, purses, or cell phones stolen. In some cases, property was taken from coat pockets or off tables while victims danced.

Since January 1, seven victims have filed theft reports.

A rash of similar crimes took place in the center city last summer. They mostly involved the theft of high-end cell phones, and a MPD YouTube video was posted with tips on how to best avoid being victimized.
