Carroll Gardens–Cobble Hill–Red Hook

Not getting a Dell!

Cops cuffed a 27-year-old who they claim they caught on camera stealing a laptop from a Van Brunt Street building on Nov. 23.

Investigators say surveillance footage captured images of the suspect placing a Dell laptop in a cardboard box and leaving the building near the corner of Reed Street with the costly gadget at around 2:30 pm.


Police officers arrested a 29-year-old patient at a Cobble Hill medical center who allegedly tried to steal another patient’s bag on Oct. 25.

Witnesses say they saw the suspect grab the red piece suitcase from the space between her bed and the victim’s bed and leave the facility at the corner of Hicks and Pacific streets at 3:50 pm, according to documents from the District Attorney’s office.
