I’m only Fagan it

A sneaky pickpocket took a wallet — containing $200 — from the jacket pocket of an 18-year-old woman trying on shoes inside a department store on Fulton Street on April 19, police said.

The thief sat next to the woman at 3 pm at the store near Lawrence Street, and fifteen minutes later the woman noticed her jacket was lighter, police said.

Nature boy

A fun-ruiner stole a wallet, a cell phone, a camera, and several cards from a 19-year-old student enjoying nature in Cadman Plaza West on Apr. 19, police report.

At 10:30 pm, the victim placed his items down to lie on the grass. When he returned, his wallet was gone. Someone used his credit card to make $6 of purchases.

Sleeping booty

A crook stole a bookbag from a sleeping straphanger riding the D train near the Pacific Street subway station on Apr. 11, police said.

The man fell asleep at 3 am, and when he woke up, his bag — which contained a laptop, credit card, iPod, designer jacket, passport, and $200 in cash — was gone without a trace.

Copper and robber

A very specific burglar took $40,000 worth of copper plates from a Main Street electric room at some time between Mar. 22 and Apr. 15, police said.

Robbed of $19.14

The altercation occurred at about 7:20 pm. Police recovered all but 86 cents of the stolen cash.
