77th Precinct

Prospect Heights

Mal l’argent

A jerk snatched a bunch of cash from a French cafe on Vanderbilt on March 7.

The 38-year-old victim told cops he locked $998 inside a safe at Le Gamin, near Dean Street, at 12:15 am and then left. He came back the next morning, at around 10 am, and discovered the safe empty.

Only he and the restaurant owner knew the safe code — and there was no sign of damage.

Knife nut

A knife-wielding jerk blocked traffic on Atlantic Avenue then allegedly lied to cops on March 6.

Officers reported that they stopped the driver at 3 am, near Vanderbilt Avenue, and asked for his license — but instead spotted a kitchen knife inside his glove compartment.

The 35-year-old driver lied about his name, cops said, so they arrested him.

Teen trouble

A teenager beat up a classmate at a school on Underhill Avenue on Feb. 28.

A 60-year-old school safety officer told cops that a 17-year-old punched an 18-year-old at PS 9, near Bergen Street, at around 8 pm, leaving the kid with a bloody lip. Cops then arrested the underage troublemaker.
