Movers swipe client’s cash

94th Precinct


Money movers

Some crooks stole money from a guy who had hired them to help him move into his Jackson Street apartment on April 22.

The victim told police he noticed $2,600 missing from a lockbox and $600 missing from a dresser drawer after movers he hired brought furniture into his apartment between Union Avenue and Lorimer Street around 10 am.

Authorities say the bad guys also ran off before completing the job.

Bag thief

A quick-moving scoundrel snatched a woman’s purse at a Manhattan Avenue bar on April 24.

The victim says she left her bag — containing her credit cards and iPhone 6 — unattended on a chair at the watering hole between Nassau Avenue and Driggs Avenue for a few minutes around 1 am, and came back to find it missing, according to police.

She suspects the culprit was a dark-haired man wearing all black who she says was watching her throughout the night, cops said.

Creepy bandit

A sneak stole cash from a Manhattan Avenue store on April 20.

The owner told cops she locked the doors at the establishment between Driggs Avenue and Nassau Avenue at 9 pm and returned around 11 pm with her dog, who sniffed out the thief and walked right up to him as he hid in the shadows. He then then fled with $67 from the register, according to police.

Smash happy

A not-so-sneaky crook broke into man’s locked car parked on N. Ninth Street on April 18 and stole his wallet.

The victim told police he left his wallet in his car parked between Kent Avenue and Wythe Avenue while going for a run around 5 pm. He came back to find the rear driver-side window smashed and his wallet gone, according to authorities.
