Blown out 

A gunman opened fire at five parked vehicles on W. 33rd Street on Jan. 19. 

Police said they recovered 14 bullet shells on the road between Mermaid and Surf avenues around 11:10 am, and there were no reported injuries from the event. 

Cash out 

Thieves nabbed $1,500 from within a purse inside the closet of a Surf Avenue apartment on Jan. 19.

The victim told police that he returned to his home at the intersection of Neptune Avenue around 5 pm and noticed his door was damaged, and the property was missing.

Power hungry

Bandits swiped a generator and a weed whacker from a W. 25th Street public housing complex on Jan. 9. 

Employees told police that the baddie broke into the building between Mermaid and Surf Avenues at around 7 am and took the over $1,000 worth of appliances.
