68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights


Two shoplifters stole more than $1,200 worth of goods from a drugstore on Third Avenue on Dec. 6, according to police.

The two feigned a shopping trip to the store at 93rd Street just before 10 pm. They grabbed $660 worth of allergy medicine, $200 in teeth whitening strips, and $330 in Duracell batteries, according to a police report.

The two skipped the line at the register and walked right out with their take, never to sneeze, brush their teeth, or deal with a dead television remote ever again.

Cleaned out

Someone ransacked a car a couple parked on Cropsey Avenue while they took a jog at a local park on Dec. 12,

The two parked near the corner of Bay Eighth Street around 2:30 pm and when they came back an hour later they found they were missing $150 in cash, a purse, both of their debit and credit cards, and an iPhone, police reported.

The couple was not sure if the doors were locked, but police found no signs of forced entry.
