68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Door prize

A burglar with an eye for jewelry broke into a 70th Street apartment and stole $580 in trinkets on July 29, cops said.

The resident left for work at 8:30 am, and when he returned to the pad on the corner of 13th Avenue in Dyker Heights at 6:30 pm, he found that someone had busted the lock on the front door, ransacked the pad, and stolen three baubles, police said.

Late-night larceny

A bandit yanked away a woman’s cellphone on the corner of 62nd Street and Eighth Avenue in Borough Park on July 25, police reported.

The victim was walking home at 11:50 pm when the goon ran up and snatched her $800 Samsung Galaxy out of her hand, then scrammed, according to law enforcement officials.

Motor-less marauder

A bandit on a bicycle grabbed a woman’s phone on 10th Avenue at 86th Street in Dyker Heights on July 29, officers said.

The lady said she was walking her dog near the intersection at 10:20 pm when the fiend pulled the phone away and rode off, police stated.

High-flying break-in

A prowler climbed into the fifth-story window of a Ridge Boulevard apartment and stole thousands of dollars in electronics and jewelry on Aug. 1, a report says.

The victim left the abode between Wakeman Place and 67th Street in Bay Ridge at 7:40 am, and when she returned at 6:20 pm, her door was unlocked, police said.

She found her kitchen window open and an air conditioner on the floor, according to law enforcement officials. The thief took a laptop, an iPod, a camera, and jewelry worth $3,065, according to an NYPD account.

Buzzer beater

A speedy burglar broke into a 14th Avenue home and stole $3,000 on July 30 — before the homeowner’s son, who was summoned by a security alarm company, could respond to the scene, per cops.

The victim said she left her home between 76th and 77th streets in Dyker Heights at 8:30 am, and she received a call from her security company at 2:15 pm alerting her that something had triggered the home’s alarm.

Her son rushed to the scene and found the front door unlocked and $3,000 taken, officers recounted.
