Thieves inNew York City have great taste when it comes to the items they like to snatch. According to the New York Postheadphone theft has increased in the city, and the most popular brand just happens to be Beats by Dre. “They’re very hot among thieves,” explained a police source. “It’s like, ‘I see it. I want it. I can have it. I’m taking it for me, or my sister needs a pair.’”
Oddly enough children are the easiest targets and have become the victim of theft ever since the latest Beats models were released last Christmas. Suspects beat up, threaten, and in some cases use weapons, to get their hands on the earphones, “They’re being snatched from teenagers aboard subways or as they walk to and from school. People’s heads are buried in them. They don’t even know what’s going on,” added the source.
