That’s sick

Someone stole jewelry from a convalescing senior inside Long Island College Hospital on Hicks Street between Oct. 31 and Nov. 6.

The 71-year-old victim was admitted following a car accident, and handed two gold rings to a hospital employee for safekeeping.

When checkout time arrived a week later, his property was gone. Cops said hospital officials can’t even say if the person was an employee of the hospital, or explain what happened to the man’s rings, valued at $2,500.

Pocketbook thug

A man dressed in black robbed a woman on Sackett Street on Nov. 11.

The 30-year-old victim said the man threw her to the ground and snatched her purse at around 4:30 am near Henry Street. The creep dropped his black hat at the scene, but made off with a $600 Gucci pocketbook, $275, and two credit cards.

What a hoser

Someone snatched a cellphone from an unlocked car on Van Dyke Street on Nov. 3.

The 45-year-old Quebec-native said that he briefly stepped away from his car near Richards Street at around 4:15 pm and when he returned moments later, his Blackberry phone was gone, along with a $400 navigation system, $50 in largey worthless Canadian cash, and $180 in good old American greenbacks.

Car cad

Someone stole a car from Columbia Street overnight on Nov. 8.

The 47-year-old victim told cops that he had parked his 1994 Acura Integra near Degraw Street at around 7 pm, and when he returned 12 hours later, it was gone.
