‘Religious’ thief blesses himself before breaking into Brooklyn clothing store 03/27/2018 4:18 am PDT Comments WPIX via WPIX: BROOKLYN, N.Y. -- (WPIX) -- Thou shalt not steal. It's one of the 10 commandments this "religious" thief ignored as he broke into a Brooklyn clothing store Thursday evening, by throwing a brick through the glass. Before doing so, he was caught on video tracing the symbol of the cross over his chest, a motion of blessing himself. The burglary happened around 5 a.m. Thursday, March 22, at Ziani Fine Italian Clothing on Avenue U in Gravesend. Once the man broke through the glass, police say he snatched approximately 18 articles of clothing and then fled the scene on foot northbound on East 1 Street. The man was last seen wearing black and white gloves, a black baseball cap, a black jacket, black jeans and gray sneakers.
