A gunman barged into the Two Star Deli on Rockaway Parkway on Dec. 5 — robbing the two employees inside.
Workers at the store near Avenue N said the thief barged in at 12:40 am, taking money from both the store register and their wallets.
Police arrested a 22-year-old Rockaway Parkway GameStop employee who they claimed scammed his fellow employeers out of hundreds of dollars in store credit.
Workers at the store near Glenwood Road said that, back on Nov. 7, the suspect began scanning games that were in the store, marking them in the computer as returned merchandise from shoppers looking for store credit.
The alleged thief then pocketed the credit vouchers, said police, who said that the employee continued with the scam until Nov. 16.
Cops from the 69th Precinct arrested him this week, charging him with multiple counts of petit larceny.
Going the wrong way
A 36-year-old man was arrested after he was caught driving down E. 80th Street while drunk on Dec. 11.
Police said the man — who was not wearing a seatbelt — was seen in a 2011 Nissan Rogue straddling two lanes of traffic at 4:11 am. Cops pulled the man over after he was seen repeatedly driving into oncoming traffic between Flatlands Avenue and Paerdegat Fourth Street.
The man appeared to be drunk, although a Breathalyzer test wasn’t taken, police said.
