62nd Precinct

Bensonhurst—Bath Beach

Welcome home

A marauder stole $300, credit and debit cards, and jewelry from a woman’s Highlawn Avenue home on March 10.

The woman told police she returned to the home between W. 13th Street and Stillwell Avenue at around 8:30 pm, when she found that a burglar had entered the home through the back door. There were no signs of forced entry, and the house was not ransacked, according to the report, but the woman said she may have left the door unlocked, according to the report.

Mystery ride

Someone stole a 1998 BMW from Benson Avenue at some point between March 8 and 9.

The driver parked the car at Bay 29th Street at about 3:30 pm on March 8, and someone told her at 7 am the next day that the car was no longer there, police reported.

Girlhood gone wrong

Police arrested two girls who they say attempted to steal an estimated $3,000 worth of clothes and cosmetics from a Bay Parkway store on March 9.

Authorities say the girls tried to bypass the registers at the store at Shore Parkway just after 5:30 pm.

Didn’t nab the knapsack

A pilferer stole a woman’s wallet containing $1,000 and her credit and debit cards from an 86th Street store on March 10.

Someone told the woman her backpack was open when she was at the store between Bay 31st and Bay 32nd streets at around 1 pm, and when she went to close it, she discovered her wallet was gone, she told officers.

High steal

A pair of filchers stole an estimated $5,000 worth of over-the-counter medications from an 86th Street store on March 10.

The sneaks grabbed the goods and threw them into a large garbage bag at the store between Bay 40th and Bay 41st streets just after 8 pm, cops said.
