Drug bust

A man tried to flee from officers when they found him with marijuana and heroin in a car on 90th Street on April 21, police said.

Officers reported finding the man in a 2018 Infiniti between Third and Fourth avenues just after 1:45 am, when they approached the car because it was blocking a fire hydrant. They then smelled the reefer, and when the man stepped out of the vehicle, he threw a plastic straw to the ground and kicked it under the car, according to the report.

When the officers recovered it, they found heroin residue on it, and more heroin in the car and in his sock, authorities allege. The man then refused to put his hands behind his back, flailed his arms, and tried to flee, officers reported.

Cashed out

A liar stole a Shore Road resident’s debit card information and made withdrawals from cash machines valued at more than $2,100 on April 16.

The perp stole the info from the man, who lives at 68th Street, and obtained the cash just before midnight, police said. The man is still in possession of his card, according to the report.

Scratch attack

Police arrested a man who they say grabbed and scratched a woman inside a 78th Street building on April 18.

The assault occurred between Fifth and Sixth avenues at around 3 pm, and left the woman with redness and pain to her left shoulder and neck, authorities reported.

Window of opportunity

A burglar shattered a window of a woman’s car parked on 82nd Street on April 20 and stole her purse with $400 and her credit cards inside.

The car was parked between 13th and 14th avenues, and the theft occurred around 2:30 pm, police said.

Speed demon

Police arrested a man for speeding in his car on 13th Avenue on April 21 and found him in possession of marijuana and cocaine.

Officers reportedly apprehended the man at 79th Street around 10:15 pm. Police say the man is known to be affiliated with a gang, according to the report.

Beat down

A trio of baddies assaulted a man on Fifth Avenue on April 22.

The perps approached the man at 67th Street at around 12:30 am, when two of them punched him in the face repeatedly and kicked him in the legs, causing injuries, according to authorities.

Fake out

A lout tried to swindle a Seventh Avenue gas station employee with a fake $100 bill after filling up his tank with fuel on April 22.

The perp arrived at the station between 85th and 86th streets just after 5:30 pm, when he tried to pay with the fake cash, and then drove away without paying when the cashier refused it, police reported.
