Carroll Gardens Patch reports a foiled robbery inside the Barneys Co-op on Atlantic Avenue last Tuesday. A woman in her twenties and a male accomplice were caught trying to leave the store with almost $2,500 worth of denim stuffed into a bag, including three pairs of Deth Killers jeans. Security guards recovered the denim, but the robbers escaped. [Carroll Gardens Patch]
