Jewel thief

Someone broke into an apartment on Ovington Avenue on Nov. 21 and ransacked the place, taking a laptop computer and $7,000 worth of jewelry.

The resident told cops that he returned to his apartment, which is located between Third and Fourth avenues, at 9 pm and noticed the lock to his first-floor apartment had been damaged.

Further inspection revealed something much worse.

Jack in a bottle

A thug smacked a man in the head with a glass bottle in Dyker Heights Park on Nov. 18.

The 20-year old man told cops that he was hanging out on the corner of 14th Avenue and 86th Street at around 1:30 pm when he was accosted by several men.

One of the men said, curiously, “You think you could take jack,” before he smashed the bottle on the back of the victim’s head, causing cuts to his head and eyebrow. The victim told cops that he had never seen any of the thugs before.

4k heisted

Two burglars used the fire escape to break into a 64th Street apartment on Nov. 21 — and left with $4,000.

Two witnesses told cops that they saw the men moving around in the apartment, which is located between 13th and 14th avenues, at 6:30 pm.

Rim job

Someone took all four tires and rims from a car on 11th Avenue on Nov. 21.

The owner of the brand-new Infiniti sedan returned to his car, which had been parked between 75th and 76th streets, at 4 am to find the car riding a little too low.

The total value of the tires and rims was $2,000, but it apparently wasn’t enough, because the thief also took a $250 ski jacket.
