Carroll Gardens-Cobble Hill–Red Hook

Very shellfish

A pilferer dined-and-dashed at a pricey Reed Street restaurant on March 14.

An employee told police that the hungry looter ordered a $54 crab dish from the seafood restaurant between Conover and Van Brunt streets and paid with a faulty debit card — before leaving the joint with his food, and the plate, in hand.


A thief stole a converter from under a car on Union Street sometime between March 11 and March 15.

The victim told police that the bandit removed the $150 catalytic converter from his Toyota Prius parked between Hoyt and Bond streets. 

Bike bandit

A burglar stole a bike from outside a Sullivan Street school on March 11.

The victim’s father told police that he had locked his son’s $100 purple bike outside his school between Van Brunt and Richards streets at 8 am, and the two returned at 6 pm to find it missing.

Who’s behind those foster grants?

Police are searching for a bandit who nabbed a pair of Foster Grants glasses from a Smith Street pharmacy on March 12.

An employee told cops that she saw the thief enter the store on the corner of Warren Street just before midnight, before placing the $27 reading glasses under his shirt and leaving the store without paying.
