Black bag

A creep snatched a bag of cash from a meat delivery guy on Ninth Street on Jan. 30.

A worker from Los Primos Meat Market told cops that he delivered cuts to a Latin restaurant near Fifth Avenue at 2 pm and collected $5,000, which he put in a black bag. He then went to climb into his delivery truck — but a man ran up from behind, threatened him with a gun and snatched the bag.

Oh, Jesus!

A thug beat up a straphanger on Seventh Avenue on Feb. 5.

The victim told cops that he was inside the Seventh Avenue F train station near Ninth Street at 6:45 am when a long-haired man ran up to him. The man punched the poor commuter in the head and grabbed his $800 gold necklace — which was adorned with Jesus Christ’s face — before fleeing the station.

Bad taste

A thief stole thousands of bucks from a wine shop on Seventh Avenue on Jan. 30.

The owner of Slope Cellars near 15th Street told cops that two men busted the lock on the front door at 5 am, then stole a safe full of $6,000 — but took no vino.

So F’d

A crook swiped a wallet from a straphanger on Fourth Avenue on Feb. 2.

Bedroom window

A perp stole a bunch of jewelry and electronics from an apartment on Fifth Avenue on Jan. 31.

The victim told cops that she left her home near President Street at 6:40 pm, then came back an hour later. That’s when she found her bedroom window near the fire escape ajar — and a desktop computer, diamond ring, and Nikon camera gone.
