Crack attack

Cops say they busted a man with drug paraphernalia on Classon Avenue on Jan. 7.

Police stopped a 53-year-old man for jaywalking near Pacific Street at 7 pm. That’s when they discovered he was wanted on other charges. They say they then found a silver pipe covered in crack residue in his pocket.

Pool sharked

A crook jacked a fancy cellphone from a bar-goer on Vanderbilt Avenue on Jan. 4.

The 29-year-old victim told cops that he set his iPhone on a table at Branded Saloon near Bergen Street at 1 am, then headed to the pool table. He came back an hour later and discovered the $750 phone gone.

A thief snatched some electronic goodies from a car parked on Eastern Parkway on Jan. 5.

The 35-year-old victim told cops that he parked his white 2006 Ford van near Washington Avenue at 12:15 pm, then came back an hour later and discovered the lock on his door was busted — and his $800 iPad and camera were gone.

Volvo smash

A jerk stole an iPod from a car on Grand Avenue on Jan. 2.

The 24-year-old victim told cops that he parked his black 2004 Volvo near St. Marks Avenue at 4 pm, then came back 20 minutes later. That was enough time for the crook to smash the driver’s-side window and snatch the black tech toy.
