94th Precinct


Bike baddie

A thief swiped two bikes from the popular corner of Berry Street and N. Fifth Street overnight on May 24. One of the cycle’s owners noticed the crime at 3 pm the next day.

Car talk

At least two cars were stolen in the past week:

• A thief stole a car from Porter Avenue on May 26. The owner told cops that he parked near Cherry Street at around 2 pm and returned at 6:30 pm to find his Lexus missing.

• A thief stole a rental van from U-Haul on Leonard Street on May 27. Police said that the thug broke into the business, which is at Richardson Street, at around 2 am, grabbed a set of keys to a Ford Econoline, then sped off on Meeker Avenue.

Missing wallet

A thief swiped a wallet at the Manhattan Avenue C-Town on May 25.

The woman left the billfold on the checkout counter of the store between India and Java streets at 6:20 pm and left.

She realized her mistake within seconds, but by the time she returned, the wallet was gone. And by the time the victim had canceled her credit cards, the thief had rung up $233 in charges.

Vanishing act

A thief swiped an iPod and, more important, three bottles of beer from Brooklyn Star on Lorimer Street on May 24.

Workers say that the booze hound must have entered the restaurant, which is at Conselyea Street, at around 3 pm, when the doors had been left open for a delivery.

Early break

A thief broke into a Havemeyer Street apartment on May 27 and stole the resident’s iPod.

The resident left his apartment between N. Eighth and N. Ninth streets at 8:30 am and returned at around 6 pm to find that his door had been pried open and that his iPod was gone.

Towed wart

A small-minded thief stole coins from a towing company game room on Franklin Street on May 28.

The thief entered Far Better Towing at Dupont Street through a side window at around 2 or 3 pm, stealing $120 in coins before fleeing.
