Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights
A lowlife lifted thousands in cash and jewelry from an 86th Street home on March 29, police report.
The victim told cops he left his house between 11th and 12th avenues at 6 am and returned at 9:50 pm to find all the doors still locked and the windows still closed, but his bedroom in disarray — and $13,000 in cash, six rings, four earrings, three necklaces, two bracelets, two watches, and a Louis Vuitton black leather bag missing.
A pickpocket pilfered a passed-out woman’s money aboard the N train on March 24, police state.

Unfortunately, the victim said she dozed off and ended up well clear of her mark — at the 86th Street N station near W. Seventh Street. Realizing she was on the wrong line, she hopped aboard a Manhattan-bound N, and stayed awake to transfer to a 95th Street-bound R at 59th Street.
When she finally got to her stop, she looked in her pocketbook and realized someone snatched her $1,000 money order, prepaid debit card, food stamps, and $300 while she slept.
