Yen for yen

A thief burglarized a Hanson Place apartment while its resident took a wintry vacation from Dec. 31 to Jan. 4 and made off with 8,000 Japanese yen — you know, about $89.

Besides the currency from the land of the rising sun, the intruder stole a prized wristwatch and two gift cards from the building between Ashland Place and St. Felix Street.

Guitar anti-hero

Jan. 10 was the day the music died in a Flatbush Avenue music shop — because a villain stole some recording equipment.

Sometime in the morning, a minstrel brazenly walked out the front door, lugging two expensive music recording devices with him from the shop in the Bruce Ratner-owned mall between Atlantic Avenue and Hanson Place.

Key to problem

Leaving the keys in the ignition of a sports utility vehicle made it easy for a thief to drive off with the car parked on Flushing Avenue on Jan. 10.

The 2007 Chevy Uplander was parked in a lot between Waverly and Clinton avenues sometime that morning. The owner, 22, returned at 10:10 am and spotted a man in the driver’s seat as he sped off.
