Dirty crime

The much-burglarized Sanitation garage on Second Avenue was hit again — this time for a $5,000 power washer!

Workers at the garage, which is near Hamilton Avenue, told cops that they sent the equipment to Queens for repair and it was sent back, presumably fixed, on Aug. 17.

But two weeks later, when a worker prepared to wash down some equipment, the device was nowhere to be found.

Workers don’t know what happened — and neither does the supervisor!

This isn’t the first time that the controversial depot has been hit. Earlier this year, two navigation systems — the very instruments installed by the Bloomberg Administration after its disastrous blizzard response — were stolen from garbage trucks.

Where: 127 Second Ave.
