-- Imbesi Christensen, a law firm that has represented several victims of similar safe deposit box robberies, were retained by at least two of the victims that had their safe deposit box contents stolen at the Avenue U TD Bank. One of the law firm's partner, Vincent Imbesi, has actually represented clients in three separate bank robberies, in the past few years, all involving the theft of safe deposit box contents. In total, his clients were paid over one-million dollars by either the banks or its insurers.
According to reports, at least one robber accessed the roof of Medical Plaza P.C. at 2101 East 16th Street – right next door to TD Bank – opened a hatch, and descended into the business on a rope. The thief then busted through one of the walls to TD Bank and ransacked the bank’s safe deposit vault, stealing from multiple boxes.
The break-in wasn’t discovered until Monday morning, when employees opened up and found the mess, according to the Daily News. Fearing that the robber was still inside, police responded quickly – but the thief had probably escaped through the same roof hatch next door long before anyone arrived at the bank.
Police suspect more than one person participated in the robbery, reports the New York Post.
Neither the bank nor authorities have disclosed the amount of safe deposits accessed, or the total value of the goods taken.
