You've probably been hearing a lot about New York City's frightening crime wave and we're here to tell you that it is not really getting any better at all:
A Manhattan cop opened fire early Monday at suspected members of a high-end robbery ring casing a Manhattan restaurant — who are possibly tied to last month's shooting at Philippe Chow, police sources said.
The crew tools around in Mercedes-Benzes and BMWs to pull off its heists, which cops believe include at least 12 robberies across Manhattan, Queens and the Bronx — netting more than $4 million in jewelry and watches just since August, sources said.
The robbers — who call themselves "OED" for "Own Every Dollar" — are affiliated with the notorious Trinitarios gang in the Bronx and suspected in at least one homicide, sources said.
Four million....just since August.
Consider that even cops have become victims during this crime spree:
An off-duty cop also fell victim to the gang Sept. 9 when he was robbed of a Tag Heuer watch outside the Silver Towers condominium apartment building on West 41st Street, sources said.
Some sage advice: If you live in New York City, maybe consider getting out. If you can't, don't wear your jewelry when you leave your apartment.
