Call it an open-door policy. Jorge De Leon, a doorman at 200 East 62nd Street, where apartments rent for as much as $9,000 a month, is accused of  shirking his concierge duties in order to loot one of the building’s units of more than $100,000 worth of cash and jewelry, the New York Post reported.

De Leon allegedly used his keys to slink into the apartment of Amy Sussman after she went out for a run early Thursday morning. But he was busted soon after by a cleaning lady who found him lurking in a closet. The housekeeper alerted the building’s superintendent, who called 911.

Sussman told sources that a $75,000 engagement ring, a $35,000 wedding set and $4,800 in cash were missing from her apartment. At the time of arrest De Leon was not in possession of any of the missing goods. De Leon was arrested on charges of burglary and grand-larceny and is being held in lieu of $10,000 bail. [NYP] – Christopher Cameron
