Someone stole nearly $1,300 from the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music late last year.

The director of the Seventh Avenue music school told cops on Jan. 13 that $1,288 in bank deposits had been removed from the account at the school, which is at Lincoln Place.

SIM city

A thief broke into a woman’s Fifth Avenue apartment and stole the computer chip out of her cellphone.

The victim told cops that she learned of the crime when she got her bill on Jan. 12 and realized that someone had run up $321 in charges. When she checked her phone, she discovered that the SIM card had been removed.

Burg roundup

There were at least three burglaries reported last week:

• Thieves busted into a basement apartment on Third Street on Jan. 11, stealing electronics and $800. The resident said he was not in the unit, which is between Seventh and Eighth avenues, from 1:45 pm to 5:15 pm.

• A thief used the fire escape to access a Dean Street apartment on Jan. 12, stealing $2,000 and a car navigation system. The resident told cops that he was not in the apartment, which is between Fourth and Fifth avenues, from 3 pm to 10 pm.

• A thief pried open the door on an Eighth Avenue apartment and stole a laptop on Jan. 12. The unit, which is at Third Street, was empty between 1:30 pm and 10 pm.

Car insanity

At least four cars were stolen or broken into last week:

• A thief swiped a Jeep Liberty from Eighth Street. The owner told police that he’d parked the behemoth between Sixth and Seventh avenues at around 6 pm on Jan. 11, but the car was gone by 10:30 am on Jan. 15.

• A 17-year-old Nissan Sentra was swiped from that hotbed of car theft near the Prospect Park Zoo on Flatbush Avenue on Jan. 14. Cops say that the owner parked the car on the quiet stretch between Empire Boulevard and Grand Army Plaza at 5 pm and returned one hour later to find it gone.

• An 18-year-old Honda Civic — popular among thieves, despite its advanced age — was swiped off Second Street. The owner told cops that she parked the ancient vehicle between Seventh and Eighth avenues at around 2 pm on Jan. 10, but it was gone 26 hours later.

• In what could be an inside job, a man told cops that he parked his company car in a company lot on Second Avenue near Sixth Street on Jan. 14 only to return the next day to find the car cleaned out of $2,200 in games, electronics and computing equipment.
