Bank job

A gunman stole $13,420 from Signature Bank on Broadway on May 6.

The teller told police that a man approached her window at 12:45 pm and demanded 20s, 50s and 100s, taking out a handgun to prove his point.

The teller counted out the cash, and the thief fled towards Berry Street — the wild east, if you will.

Papa piece

Two robbers held up a Grand Street pizza restaurant on May 2, placing a to-go order for the contents of its safe.

The perps entered the Papa Johns near Lorimer Street at 10:15 pm, and one took out a silver revolver while the other demanded, “Open the safe!”

The cashier removed $470 from the register, but the thieves weren’t done — the perp with the gun pistol-whipped a customer and took his iPhone before they fled.

Club trouble

A perp stole a computer from a Broadway nightclub on May 7.

The bar manager told police that she saw three perps standing by the club’s computer at 1:03 am, when one unplugged it, put it under his shirt, and walked out of the bar toward Keap Street.

Devoe tee

A thief snatched an iPhone from a woman on Devoe Street on May 3.

The woman told police that she was heading home at 2:25 am when the thief approached her from behind, grabbed the phone, and fled down toward Bushwick Avenue.

Car troubles

At least three cars were hit last week:

• A thief stole $700 and an iPod from a car on Leonard Street overnight on May 3.

The driver told police that he parked near Stagg Street at 9 pm and returned eight hours later to find the front passenger-side window smashed and his stuff gone.

• A thief stole a Volkswagen on S. Second Street on May 4. The driver told police that she parked at midnight near Marcy Avenue, but the car was gone by 2:30 pm.

• A thief stole a Chevrolet from Olive Street on May 21. The driver told police that he parked near Devoe Street at 9 pm and returned 12 hours later to find his Chevy missing.

Berry bad

A thief stole a computer and $4,000 from a Berry Street apartment on May 4.

The tenant told police that she left her apartment near S. Third Street at 5 pm, but when she returned at midnight, she found her stuff was gone.
