    it's a long read but very, very interesting, especially if you're into clothing

    footnotes: 17 year old kid from queensbridge discovers 5th ave and starts stealing high end designer clothing
    yes, he gets locked up plenty of times but continues doing so
    he's now 18 doing a 1 to 3 at sing sing but has no intentions of stopping

    I heard of someone through a friend that robs trucks from the port of designer clothes.

    since he doesn't use a weapon and the distributors are overseas he gets off with very little time (1 month) if he gets caught at all
