Roommate Steals 3 Rifles, Diamond Ring, Port Authority Shield in Brooklyn: Cops

Police are looking for a 47-year-old man who allegedly stole three rifles, a diamond ring and a Port Authority shield, among other items, from a woman he lived with for two weeks in Brooklyn. 

The relationship between the suspect, identified as Thomas Farrell, and the 44-year-old victim wasn't immediately clear, nor was it known why he lived with her so briefly at the Avenue P home in Bensonhurst. 

Authorities say the victim reported the theft shortly after 3 p.m. Sunday. The victim told the cops Farrell stole cash, credit cards, boxes of ammunition and an Apple iPad along with the ring, guns and shield. The Port Authority shield belonged to a dead relative, authorities say. 

Anyone with information on the suspect (photo above) is asked to call authorities.
