Cashed in

A no-goodnik broke into a woman’s W. 13th Street bedroom on Jan. 26 and stole $8,000, plus some of her jewelry and handbags.

The weasel pushed in a window screen at the home between Quentin Road and Highlawn Avenue at some point between 6:20 and 8 pm, the woman told police.

Trucking it

A thief stole a man’s 2004 Ford F-250 pickup truck after he parked it on Stillwell Avenue on Jan. 22.

The victim said he lef the vehicle between Avenues S and T at 1:30 pm, and hasn’t seen it since.

Liar, liar

A scammer in India duped an Avenue O resident of $4,000 on Jan. 22 after requesting transactions for a video card through a messaging app.

The thief contacted the local, who lives between W. Eighth and Ninth streets, just before noon, and the victim sent the funds through WhatsApp. The victim only found out it was a scam when the thief said so after receiving the money, police noted. Moneygram later confirmed the news, cops reported.

Drove off for the day

A punk drove off with a woman’s 2017 Toyota RAV4 from its W. Fifth Street parking spot on Jan. 23, police said.

The woman parked her car between Avenues O and P at 11 am, and when she returned an hour later, it was gone, she told police.

Pricey cup of joe

A perp stole a man’s wallet containing $200 from an 18th Avenue store on Jan. 23, the man told police.

The man said he went into the store between 66th and 67th streets to buy a cup of coffee around 10 am, and realized his wallet was missing after he had left.

Window of opportunity

A crook broke into a 66th Street home on Jan. 27 and stole $100, a cellphone, and Ray Ban sunglasses.

The sneak climbed in through the bathroom window of the home between 19th and 20th avenues at around 9 pm, grabbed the goods, and likely fled through the front door, police said.

Phoned some friends

A pack of perps stole a cellphone and threatened an employee at an 86th Street store on Jan. 27.

The group of good-for-nothings entered the store at W. 13th Street at about 4:25 pm, pulled the phone off the display case, and flashed a razor when a store employee confronted them, threatening to kill the employee before fleeing towards Avenue U.

Cash grab

A thief stole $500 and credit cards from a car parked on Bath Avenue on Jan. 27.
