A cat burglar broke into an empty Baltic Street house on Halloween and fled with two passports, thousands of dollars in cash and a pile of dress-up-worthy gold jewelry.

The criminal broke into the house, which is between Bond and Nevins streets, through a rear window sometime between 4:30 and 8:30 pm on Oct. 31, cops said.

The victim, a 59-year-old woman, lost $3,000, $873 in money orders and jewelry worth $5,000.

The stolen passports are valuable on the black market, cops said.

A gun-packing mugger robbed a 24-year-old man walking on Bond Street around midnight on Nov. 4, police said.

The hood, who wore a gray jacket, approached his mark near Sackett Street with his weapon in hand.

“I know you have the money, so don’t f—ing try it,” he said.

After the victim handed over 25 $20 bills, the perp fired his gun two times, striking a blue Subaru parked nearby before fleeing.

No witnesses were hurt, but two bullet holes were left in the driver’s side of the car, police said.
