68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Treasure hunter

A burglar looted a 10th Avenue apartment of thousands in cash and jewelry on Nov. 6, according to cops.

The victim reported that she left her home between 80th and 81st streets at 11 am and came back at 1:50 pm to discover the rear door ajar and the house ransacked. Upstairs she found two diamond-studded platinum rings, a gold bracelet, two gold bands, two gold necklaces, and $8,000 in cash missing.

Gone in a flash

A lowlife lifted a camera from a house on 69th Street sometime between Nov. 5 and 6, police report.

The victim told cops she left her residence between Eighth and Ninth avenues at 2 pm, and came back the following day at 6 pm. Inside, she found the kitchen window open, its screen on the floor, and her pricey digital camera missing.

Balcony raider

A crook broke into a 65th Street house through the second-floor balcony and made off with stash of cash and gold swag on Nov. 6, authorities allege.

The victim said he left his home between 10th and 11th avenues at 10 am. On returning at 5 pm, he found the balcony door open and $3,000 in cash, a gold necklace, and a gold ring gone.

Window shopping

A thief smashed his way into a vehicle in a Fifth Avenue parking lot and stole a handbag full of goodies on Nov. 6, police state.

The victim said she left her car — with the loaded pocketbook inside — in the lot between 93rd and 94th streets at 7:45 pm. When she went back to the vehicle 15 minutes later, she found her passenger-side window in shards and her purse — containing her cellphone, tablet computer, and debit card — stolen.

Nick of crime

A speedy fiend broke into a car parked outside a Third Avenue supermarket on Nov. 10, cops report.

The victim said she left her car between 91st and 92nd streets at 8:01 pm to run inside the store. When she returned just four minutes later, she discovered her car’s passenger-side glass shattered and her designer leather bag — with her iPhone and $280 cash inside — missing.

No takers

A villain invaded and rifled through a Seventh Avenue home on Nov. 9 — but left without taking anything, according to cops.

The victim said he left his house between 83rd and 84th streets at 8 pm and came back 18 minutes later to discover a side window open. Inside, however, he found nothing missing.
