A 23-year-old man returned to his Court Street apartment on July 12 to find his room a mess and his tech gear gone, police said.
A thief had climbed up a fire escape to break into the man’s apartment, which is near Ninth Street.
After ransacking the apartment, he left with a $300 digital camera and $1,500 laptop. The break-in happened during daylight hours, police said.
Three thugs robbed a 13-year-old boy walking on Second Place near Henry Street on July 16 at 3:20 pm, police said.
The hoods approached the kid from behind, and one asked, “You got any money?”
When the younger boy shrugged, another thug told him to empty his pockets.
The boy took out a blue flip phone and handed it to the teens.
Thieves broke into a Nissan Pathfinder parked on Degraw Street between Court and Smith streets, stealing more than $21,000 in jewelry on July 17, police said.
The jewel robbers broke through a window to steal three platinum wedding rings worth $17,000 in total, a Movado watch and an 18-carat gold necklace and bracelet set in the 10 am heist.
The jewels belonged to the car’s 37-year-old owner, who had them stashed in a make-up case.
Police believe that a camera at a store caught the caper, but the tape has not yet been retrieved.
