Bad customer

Cops cuffed a guy on Nov. 30 for stealing eight phones from a store on Avenue Z on Nov. 25.

The store worker told police he was talking to the suspect about buying eight various iPhones at the store near E. 13th Street at about 9:30 pm when the suspect threatened if he didn’t cough over the phones and said, “I will beat your a– if you call the cops!”

The suspect fled in a black four-door Mercedes Benz, according to authorities.

Attempted break-in

Some punk broke the door of a woman’s office building on Kings Highway while she home for Thanksgiving, police said.

The woman told police she had left her office near E. 16th Street on Nov. 23 and when she returned on Nov. 28, saw the door hinge was removed. The jerk didn’t end up getting in and didn’t steal anything, according to authorities.

Tool thief

A baddie stole tools from a commercial van parked on Ocean Parkway on Nov. 30, officials said.

The van owner told police he had stepped away from the vehicle parked near Kings Highway at about 6 pm for 30 minutes and when he returned, noticed the lock on the passenger door was removed.

The crook swiped a large haul of tools, including a hammer drill, hole puncher, and wire cutter, according to authorities.
