Meathead walks out with store’s brisket

76th Precinct

Carroll Gardens-Cobble Hill–Red Hook

Briskey business

A meathead stole five cuts of brisket from a Van Brunt Street grocery store’s meat locker sometime between Sept. 11 and Sept. 14.

The guy, who didn’t work for the grocer near Reed Street in Red Hook, walked into the store, took brisket valued at $250 from a meat locker, and left, police said.

Ain’t sayin’ nuthin’

A guy caught five bullets at the corner of Dwight and King streets in Red Hook on Sept. 12, but he won’t go shooting his mouth off to cops about who did it.

Someone pumped slugs into the tight-lipped victim’s left thigh, left knee, both arms, his back, and his torso at 4:08 am, police said. But the man was uncooperative and refused to describe the assailant or say what may have prompted the violence, officials said.

The wounds did not appear to be life-threatening, and emergency medical services took the victim to Lutheran Medical Center, authorities said.

Gone postage

Police arrested a postal worker on Sept. 14, who they say stole packages worth $2,300 from the post office on Clinton Street over the course of several months.

The 34-year-old employee allegedly took 12 packages out of the mail stream and put them in her locker in the building between Bush and Centre streets in Red Hook sometime between June 15 and Sept. 14, officials said. She is being charged with grand larceny, police said.

Lifting gears

A miscreant stole a bike from a Smith Street building’s vestibule between Sept. 3 and Sept. 8.

The bicycle’s owner left her ride chained to a bannister in the building between Baltic and Warren Streets in Carroll Gardens and left town on vacation, police siad. When she got back, her bike was gone, officials said.
