Cruisin’ for booze

A sly thief robbed a Flatbush Avenue business of cash, liquor, and scratch-off tickets sometime overnight on June 14.

Through the front door

A burglar raided a senior’s Troy Avenue apartment for jewelry on June 15.

Police say there was no forced entry signs on the apartment door, all windows were locked, and the front door may have been left unlocked.

Lost and recovered
