Camera snatcher

A lout looted a man’s car on Kings Highway on Dec. 13.

The bandit then fled the scene, but was caught on surveillance cameras, according to cops.

Booze bandits

Police arrested a man who they say burglarized a commercial building on Avenue U on Dec. 11.

The suspect allegedly forced his way into the building near E. 12th Street at 9:15 pm through a rear window and stole $4,000 from the front desk drawer.

Video surveillance caught the suspect in the act and police said they found tools at the scene.

He was arrested on Dec. 13 at 6 pm and brought to the precinct station house.
