Mirror, mirror off my car

84th Precinct

Brooklyn Heights–DUMBO–Boerum Hill–Downtown

Mirror, mirror

A thief stole the side-view mirrors from a car on Cranberry Street sometime between Nov. 15 and Nov. 18.

The vehicle’s owner said he parked between Willow Street and Columbia Heights at 6 pm on Nov. 15. Three days later, the mirrors were missing.

Smoked out

A tobacco fiend stole 12 cartons of cigarettes from a Montague Street drug store on Nov. 17.

A witness told police that the thief entered the store at Clinton Street at 10:30 pm and removed the cancer sticks from a display case behind the counter.

The cartons are worth $1,378, making this anything but a petty crime.

Subway bust

Police arrested two men for stealing an iPod at the Pacific Street subway station on Nov. 17.

The victim said that he was on a Brighton Beach-bound B train at 7 pm when the men elbowed him in the face, grabbed his music player and fled.

Cops arrested two men later — and they still had the stolen device, police said.

Copper heist

A thief broke into a Schermerhorn Street construction site overnight on Nov. 16 to steal the most precious of no-so-precious metals: copper.

A supervisor at the building, between Hoyt and Bond streets, said that he closed the site at 4 pm and returned at 6 am to find $400 worth of the new gold missing.

High schooled

A thief stole a laptop from a high school on Flatbush Avenue Extension on Nov. 15.

Officials at the Urban Assembly School of Music and Art told police that the laptop was stolen from a locked classroom at the school at Bridge Street around 7:45 am.

49 Flatbush Avenue Ext.
