The co-op board at 740 Park Avenue is “sabotaging” the police investigation of a spate of burglaries that resulted in the loss of $250,000 in jewelry, the New York Post reported, citing an unnamed source.

Board members have conducted their own probe and hired private investigators. They also fired employees they suspect of having a role in the thefts earlier this month. A law enforcement official told the Post it is “irritating” and making the case more difficult to solve. A spokesperson for the building’s manager, Brown Harris Stevens, did not respond to the Post’s request for comment.

Victims of the thefts include June Dyson, a 95-year-old socialite and widow of financier Charles Dyson, and hedge funder David Ganek and his novelist wife Danielle Ganek. Dyson lost an $82,000 diamond bracelet and a rhinestone pin. The Ganecks lost diamond earrings, two Patek Philippe watches and more jewelry worth nearly $100,000, as previously reported.
