VALERIE CASTRO REPORTS. Reporter: NASSAU POLICE SAY LAST WEEK SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS CAPTURED THIS IMAGE OF THE SUSPECT WHO ENTERED THE LA FITNESS LOCKER ROOM INSIDE THE GYM ON STEWART AVENUE IN EAST GARDEN CITY AND STOLE A PATRONS WALLET AND KEYS FROM A LOCKER. THE SUSPECT THEN STOLE THE VICTIM’S CAR AND USED HIS CREDIT CARDS TO BUY GET’S. THE CAR WAS LATER ABANDONED. JOE SMITH OF PLAINVIEW SAYS THE SAME THING HAPPENED TO HIM AT A DIFFERENT JIM. HE TOOK MY WALLET IN MY KEYS. Reporter: NEITHER VICTIM CHOSE TO PUT A LOCK ON THEIR LOCKER, TRUSTING THEIR VALUABLES WERE SAFE. WE HAVE A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO LEAVE WATCHES, WEDDING BANDS. Reporter: CUSTOMERS ARE URGED TO LOCK UP ALL OF THEIR VALUABLES POINTING OUT THAT FITNESS CLUBS HAVE NO LEGAL OBLIGATION TO REIMBURSE YOU FOR ANY LOSSES. I NEVER USE THE LOCKERS BECAUSE I DON’T TRUST IT. Reporter: THIS COLLEGE SENIOR WOULD RATHER CARRY HER BELONGINGS ALTHOUGH SHE WORRIES ABOUT SOMEONE STEPPING ON HER CELL PHONE. INSTEAD OF A LOCKER, THIS MAN RELIES ON AN ARM PATCH. I HAVE MY LICENSE AND SOME CASH FOR A SHAKE. THAT IS ONLY BRING. Reporter: FOR THOSE WHO CHOOSE A LOCK, PATRONS OFTEN THINK THEY HAVE LOCKED UP WHEN THEY REALLY HAVEN’T. IT EVEN HAPPENED TO THIS FITNESS TRAINER WHEN THIEVES STOLE HER POCKETBOOK FROM THE LOCKER INSIDE HER PERSONAL JIM. MY SECOND DAY, MY LOCKER GOT BROKEN INTO.
