68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Apple picker

A crook made off with a Bay Ridge woman’s $3,100 MacBook — plus $4,000 in other gadgets and jewelry — from her 94th Street home on Aug. 3, cops say.

The victim told police that she left her home between Third and Fourth avenues at 6:30 am, then came back at 6:15 pm to find her front door unlocked and her laptop, Bose radio, two external hard drives, and a pair of pricey silver bracelets all missing.

Very tire-d

A thief stole the tires off of a Bay Ridge man’s sedan from Ridge Boulevard sometime between July 30 and Aug. 2, police report.

The victim said he parked his car near 81st Street at 8 pm on Monday, and came back to move it on Thursday. When he got there, though, he saw all his tires were gone.

Generator X

A burglar swiped a $5,000 generator from a Narrows Avenue construction site on Aug. 4, according to cops.

The victim said he left the machine behind a boarded fence at the site between 79th and 80th streets at 5 pm, and came back at 10 the next morning to see the expensive piece of equipment had been stolen.

Coin flip

A jerk stole a Bay Ridge man’s lease agreement and coin collection from his 95th Street apartment on Aug. 3, police report.

The victim said he left his home between Third and Fourth avenues at 10:45 am and came back at 2:30 pm to find his hobby ruined and his landlord-tenant contract gone.

No safe-ty

A crook took the safe from a Chinese restaurant on Eighth Avenue on July 31, cops report.

The owner of the eatery between 64th and 65th streets said that he closed up shop at 3 am and returned three hours later to find his safe containing $6,000 in cash missing. Police say the joint’s surveillance tapes show the perp breaking in and carrying the lockbox out to his car, then speeding off.
