Victim of dove

A heartless crook held up a Manhattan Avenue store for $24 and an iPod — then shot two doves before leaving on March 4.

An employee of Sastreria De San Miguel Tailoring told police that the peace-hating villain entered the shop, at Green Street, at about 2 pm, locked the front door, pointed his gun at the employee’s head and used his other hand to steal the cash and iPod.

The gunman then moved to a cage where two doves were being kept as pets, shot them execution-style, and threatened to kill the worker if he called police. The thief then fled, the blood of the innocents on his hands.

Drunk burglary

A villain took advantage of a drunken renter by stealing his stuff while he slept in his Manhattan Avenue apartment on March 1.

The victim told police that he had fallen asleep at his home, which is between Nassau and Driggs avenues, at around 7:30 pm after a long day of drinking. He woke up at 9 am to find that $40 had been stolen from his pants, and a number of other items were stolen from a locked drawer in his room.

State parked

Someone stole a man’s camera lenses and laptop from his car while he took pictures in East River State Park near N. 12th Street on March 2.

While the cameraman was taking pictures at around 10 am, the thief was pilfering the car, which was sitting Kent and Wythe avenues.
