68th Precinct

Bay Ridge-Dyker Heights

Blasphemous burg

Someone sneaked into a Ridge Boulevard apartment on July 19 to steal gadgets, jewelry, cash and a Bible.

Cops say that the Eighth Commandment-defying perp slipped through the window of the home, which is between 68th and 69th streets, between 12:30 pm and 6:30 pm. In addition to the holy book, the thief made off with a TV, computer, iPhone and $300.

Phone snatch

Two thugs swiped a 17-year-old kid’s smartphone on Ridge Boulevard on July 19.

The victim told cops that the unknown perps approached him near Bay Ridge Parkway at 10:30 pm, snatching his Blackberry from his hand and fleeing.

Jewel thief

Someone lifted thousands of dollars worth of jewelry from a Shore Road apartment between May 1 and July 15.

The unobservant victim, who lives between Narrows Avenue and Shore Road, took two-and-a-half months to realize that necklaces, rings, bracelets and watches were missing from his bedroom jewel chest.

Do you people ever stop, reflect, and think about how much you hate your lives for having to write such idiotic things as "perps" and "jewel chest."
