One of Paul Manafort's primary bankers had his Manhattan penthouse burglarized overnight


Key Paul Manafort Banker Robbed of iPad, Briefcase in Mysterious Overnight Break-in at His NYC Penthouse: Sources
David Fallarino was one of three so-called key figures not called by Robert Mueller's office to testify at the trial of Paul Manafort


One of Paul Manafort's primary bankers had his Manhattan penthouse burglarized overnight, a mysterious break-in that saw a briefcase, iPad and sneakers stolen from the residence, law enforcement sources familiar with the case tell News 4.

David Fallarino, dubbed Manafort's "front office banker" at Citizens Bank by the Huffington Post, told authorities he left the terrace door of his West 58th Street home open before he went to sleep Monday, the sources say.

Fallarino, 38, said he heard a noise around 1:30 a.m. Tuesday and went out to find a crow bar on the terrace, the sources say. There were no apparent signs of forced entry, the sources say, but Fallarino reported his wine cabinet was open and there was a bottle of wine on the floor. The briefcase, iPad and sneakers were the only items missing, the sources said.

The sources did not have any information on a possible suspect or suspects. Repeated attempts to reach Fallarino were unsuccessful; an assistant at Citizens Bank said he was on vacation and declined to comment.

1. Why That's not Suspicious at All

Time to really start sweating Manny.

2. Considering how hot it is in New York the last few days, there is something very suspicious

about the door being left open. And especially since only those few things were taken

4. Hmmm... Maybe should be looking not for what's missing, but for

what was left that wasn't there before.

5. This screams staged to me as a cop

 

He happened to leave the door open, an obvious burglary tool just happened to to left behind, and the wine cabinet was opened- but they took only an ipad, his briefcase and sneakers?

In coming days watch for subpoenaed documents to just happen to have been in that briefcase....

11. Sneakers were taken for a reason

Think symbolism.

No sneakers, no running.

Manny’s got nowhere to run, nowhere to hide. Perhaps his banker too.

12. Looks more to me like a bad attempt to fake a burglary

 

“I can’t just have the briefcase missing. What else would a poor person steal? An iPad and..... oh shoes! Poor people need shoes!”

6. Hmmmm...

"went out to find a crow bar on the terrace, the sources say. There were no apparent signs of forced entry,"

AND

the thief was really precise in what they took.

7. A New Yorker left his terrace door unlocked while he slept?

I don't believe that for a second.
He must think we're stupid or else he is very, very stupid.

15. It's also been crazy hot

the last few days. No way anyone who lives in a penthouse left their doors open. Frankly, I think he should be looking for bugs left behind.
