Same woman is two-time loser

77th Precinct

Prospect Heights

Fool her twice

The same woman had a bicycle stolen and a car smashed up in seemingly separate incidents last week:

• First, a jerk stole the Washington Avenue woman’s bicycle out of her apartment building between Sterling and St. Johns places between 2 am and 3:30 pm.

• The same woman’s car, which had been parked on near Sterling Place on Oct. 7, was sideswiped between 1 and 3 pm.

Hit ’em up

A jerk driver hit a parked car on Plaza Street East — then fled — on Oct. 4.

The 41-year-old victim told cops that she parked between Vanderbilt and Flatbush avenues at 10:30 am, and returned two and a half hours later to find that her vehicle had been struck.

Subway swipe

A crafty thief swiped an $8,000 piece of equipment that subway workers left on a Prospect Place sidewalk on Oct. 4.

Workers left the MTA survey equipment between Carlton and Vanderbilt avenues at noon before boarding a work truck. Later, they returned to the site and discovered that the equipment was gone.


A jerk in a car hit a man crossing the street near Vanderbilt Avenue on Oct. 6.

The 47-year-old pedestrian told cops that he was walking across the street at Park Place at 10:25 pm when the lunatic struck him and fled.

Drug seen

An alleged junkie got busted for displaying drugs in public on St. Johns Place on Oct. 5.

Cops say that they observed the 54-year-old druggie in possession of heroin on the street between Underhill Avenue and Plaza Street East at 1 pm. He was taken to the 77th Precinct stationhouse, strip-searched and arrested.

Untidy thief

A thief stole a bunch of clothes from a car on St. Johns Place late on Oct. 6.

The victim parked between Washington and Underhill avenues at 9 pm and returned four hours later to find his box of jeans, shirts, shoes and underwear gone.


Navigation systems were stolen out of cars left and right this week. Here are the details:

• A thief broke into a car on St. Marks Avenue between Carlton and Vanderbilt avenues overnight on Oct. 8. The victim told cops he parked at 9:45 pm, but when he returned at 11:30 the next morning, his laptop and digital map were gone.

• A jerk broke into a car on Underhill Avenue between Lincoln Place and Eastern Parkway overnight on Oct. 9. The victim told cops that he left his car with the front window open at 7:30 pm and returned eight hours later to find his navigation system, CDs and cellphone charger gone.
