NYC storm victims' homes looted over Thanksgiving
Saturday - 11/24/2012, 11:38am EST
NEW YORK (AP) - Some residents of a New York City neighborhood that suffered fire and flooding during Superstorm Sandy say thieves looted their damaged houses over Thanksgiving.
The New York Post reports ( http://bit.ly/QgcssM) that thieves struck at least three homes in the Breezy Point section of Queens.
One couple lost a $25,000 coin collection along with jewelry and watches.
The break-ins occurred Wednesday or Thursday when many residents were away for the holiday.
Robert Bainbridge says looters took $400 in two change jars. He says he's trying to repair his flooded home and the theft "adds insult to injury."
The Post reports that there were 14 home break-ins in Breezy Point from Nov. 12 to Nov. 18. There were none during the same period last year.
