A burglar broke into a church on Court Street near Luquer Street and left without closing the fridge behind him.

The thief broke in through a rear door and stole a cable box, $737 from an unlocked safe, and miscellaneous food from a refrigerator, police said. The door to fridge stayed open until the crime was discovered by a member of the church.

Geeked out

A Red Hook man was robbed of thousands of dollars in photo and computer equipment in broad daylight on Sept. 12, police said.

The tech-savvy bandit broke into a locked car parked on King Street between Richard and Verona streets at around 10 am and got away with a $800 Nikon camera, a $700 satellite-guided navigation system, 20 computer memory cards and a camera worth $5,000.

Bad medicine

A doctor’s Long Island College Hospital office was burglarized on Sept. 11, police said.

The 48-year-old doc left her office at 4:15 pm. When she returned four hours later, her $1,800 laptop had disappeared along with two memory sticks. There was no sign of forced entry, an officer said.


A woman sashayed into an unlocked Red Hook house at 3:20 pm on Sept. 7 and held up the man lounging inside, police said.

The robber walked into the house on Sullivan Street between Van Brunt and Conover streets without a weapon.

“Give me your money,” she said to the man inside. She got away with a black iPod worth $600 — but no cash.

The victim said that the woman who held him up was average height, black and short-haired.
