Two motorists who parked their cars in Williamsburg on Nov. 16 and left the keys inside returned (surprise!) to find their cars gone.
The first incident occurred on Gerry Street between Harrison and Throop avenues, where a 31-year-old Queens man parked his 1998 Toyota Camry.
The second incident occurred on Morgan Avenue between Flushing Avenue and Rock Street, where the 42-year-old victim’s wife had parked their 1995 Toyota Camry at 11 pm.
A 15-year-old stood up to a thug who tried to steal his cellphone on Nov. 16 — and cops later arrested the suspect based on the teen’s identification, cops said.
Cops say the mugger approached the 15-year-old at the corner of South Fifth Street and Bedford Avenue and demanded the phone.
The pair grappled before the thug ran off empty-handed.
But cops soon caught up with the 17-year-old suspect.
An irreverent thief broke in to a Throop Avenue church on Nov. 18 and stole three DVD players and a typewriter.
Yes, a typewriter.
The thug busted a window in the front of All Saints Church, which is between Whipple and Thornton streets, climbed inside and made off with the DVD players and a Royal typewriter, valued at $100.
A burglar broke in to a Scholes Street apartment on Nov. 16 and took $6,000 in cash and jewelry from a safe.
The thief came in through the bedroom window of the apartment, which is between Humboldt Street and Bushwick Avenue, and left through the front door after cracking open the safe.
The 59-year-old victim told police that he lost $6,000 plus rings, necklaces and earrings.
Yet another 1994 Honda Civic — a model that is highly sought after by thieves despite having a book value in the triple digits —Â was stolen on Nov. 16.
The 56-year-old victim told police that she had parked the red coupe near the corner of Bedford Avenue and South Fifth Street at around 7:30 pm.
When she returned the following afternoon, the car was gone.
