Verizon villain

A thief swiped three cellphones and a corporate credit card from a Verizon truck on Oct. 29, only to be arrested with the goods a short time later.

Police were told that the truck was parked on E. 16th Street between Gravesend Neck Road and Avenue W in Sheepshead Bay at 11 am.

The driver returned to the truck to find the door had been forced open and the cabin looted, with the cellphones and the credit card missing.

Three hours later, when cops nabbed a 30-year-old thief for trespassing in a building on Brighton 14th Street, they found the stolen cellphones and credit card on him. He was charged with burglary and criminal possession of stolen property.

Where: East 16th Street and Gravesend Neck Road
