Cops seek man who stole cosmetics from West Islip store

Call him "The Bicycle Bandit." Which is probably better than "The Makeup Man."

Suffolk County police are asking for your help in finding a man who stole cosmetics from a West Islip Rite Aid store - and fled on what police said was a silver bicycle.

The first robbery took place at the Rite Aid on Union Boulevard on May 20. The man stole $400 worth of cosmetics then, police said. Police said he tried again on June 27 but was caught trying to leave the store with more than $300 worth of goods. He dropped the bag, ran - and fled on the bike.

Police are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 800-220-TIPS. All calls will remain confidential and callers will be eligible for a cash reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to an arrest.
