Bay Ridge–Dyker Heights
A slippery perp slid in through a bedroom window of a Marine Avenue apartment and made off with $17,000 in jewelry on Dec. 5.
The victim told cops that she left her house between Ridge Boulevard and 95th Street at 2:20 pm and returned 10 hours later to find her bedroom window open and three gold rings — one with a coin set in it — missing.
A thief cut his way through a screen door to swipe lots of jewelry from a 73rd Street house on Dec. 5.

Thieves broke into a 76th Street house on Dec. 6 — but barking dogs scared them off before they stole anything.

Smash, no grab
Perps sneaked in through a rear window and rearranged some furniture inside a Bay Ridge Avenue apartment on Dec. 9, but stole nothing.
The victim told cops that she left her house between 12th and 13th avenues at 9:30 pm and returned less than two hours later to find that failed thieves had moved around her stove and bed.
Nothing was missing, though.
