Restaurant robbery

A couple of punks broke into a Myrtle Avenue restaurant on Nov. 28 and stole thousands of dollars in cash and equipment.

An employee told police that the two baddies broke the front door of Castro’s Restaurant between Ryerson Street and Grand Avenue around 3 am, then tossed a brick through the glass and stepped inside. The sneaks then pulled out and made off with register drawers stuffed with cash and a black electric bicycle. 

Dubious break-in

An employee reporting for work at a Myrtle Avenue restaurant on the morning of Nov 28. was pretty sure someone had broken into the shop, but it’s not clear if anything was stolen.

A robber may have broken into a Myrtle Avenue restaurant on the morning of Nov 28. 

An employee told police that he reported for his shift at Soco, between Ryerson Street and Grand Avenue at 10am, and realized that the front door had been broken open and that the restaurant counter was messy — but it wasn’t immediately obvious what, if anything, had been nabbed.

Leather loser

Some sneak thief whisked away an expensive package from a Clinton Avenue porch on Nov. 11.

The victim told police that the swinder stole the package, containing a more than $1,000 coat, that had been delivered to the front door of an apartment building near Lafayette Avenue.

COVID relief compromised

A jerk stole someone’s state-issued pandemic relief funds to make some big tech purchases last month.

The victim told police that he checked his statement on Nov. 23 and noticed two charges he hadn’t made — both at Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue Apple store, on Nov. 10 and 11, for a total of over $3,000.

Wegman’s wallet thief

A brazen purse-snatcher stole a wallet from a woman’s purse while she was grocery shopping at the Flushing Avenue Wegman’s on Nov. 23.

The victim told police that the cad lifted her wallet and put multiple changes on her credit car at around 4:30 pm. 

Phone stolen from parked car

An unseen snake stole an iPhone from a truck parked on Myrtle Avenue on Nov. 26.

The victim told police that he left his delivery truck parked between Steuben Street and Emerson Place for about a half hour at 4pm, with his blue iPhone 13 charging inside. When he finished his route, he returned to the truck to find that someone had stolen the smartphone. He was able to watch security footage from a nearby camera, and watched someone reach in to grab the phone before running off.
