84th Precinct

Brooklyn Heights–DUMBO–Boerum Hill–Downtown

Busted for bubbly

Cops arrested three teens for swiping a bunch of soda bottles from a Water Street restaurant on Feb. 24.

Two 18-year-olds and a 17-year-old ran out of the eatery near Furman Street at about 3:30 am with soda bottles and were later stopped at Brooklyn Bridge Park, police said. The drinks were not recovered, officials said.

Shirt swiper

Police cuffed a guy who they say stole shirts from a department store on Fulton Street on Feb. 20.

The 65-year-old man tried to leave the store near Livingston Street at about 2:30 pm with two bags filled with shirts, according to authorities.

Gym rat

A baddie stole a guy’s wallet from his locker inside an Atlantic Avenue gym on Feb. 28, police said.

The victim told police that he secured his stuff in a locker at the gym near Boerum Place with a number combination at 1 pm, and went to work out.

When he returned two hours later, his wallet — with credit cards, his social security card, and driver’s license inside — was gone, cops said.


Some sneak swiped a guy’s backpack from his car parked on State Street on Feb. 20, police said.

The 20-year-old told police he had left his bag with his Apple MacBook laptop, Dell laptop, Apple headphones, Apple charger, and a Dell charger inside in the back of his car to check into a hotel near Nevins Street at about 6 pm, and when he returned at 9:40 pm, it was gone, police said.

Bump and steal

A punk stole a guy’s wallet after bumping into him inside a subway station near Joralemon Street on Feb. 24, police said.

The victim told police he was on a Brooklyn-bound 4 train when it pulled into the station near Court Street, and when he got off at about 9:30 pm, a nogoodnik bumped into him from behind.

The victim, who said he was an off-duty employee for the police department, walked about four blocks to catch a bus near Atlantic Avenue and realized his wallet — with his MetroCard, credit card, Saks Fifth Avenue card, and Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association card inside — was missing from his pant pocket, cops said.
