78th Precinct

Park Slope

Booze hound

A greedy goon broke into a woman’s Second Street apartment and swiped her bottles of booze and an enviable booty of jewelry and technology on Aug. 6.

The boozer damaged the front door of the apartment between Fifth and Sixth avenues when he barreled in sometime between 9 am and 8 pm and took a MacBook, an antique locket, a sapphire ring, and bottles of vodka and tequila, according to a police report.

Slithering sneak

A scummy scamp slipped through the open window of man’s Sterling Place apartment and snatched his MacBook on Aug. 6.

The guy got back to his apartment between Seventh and Eighth Avenues at around 6:30 pm to find someone had filched his laptop off of the living room table, then dragged the table across the floor and towards the open window, cops say.

The hapless victim told cops he left his window open because it had bars on it, but the devilish laptop-grabber may have slithered his way in somehow because there was no signs of forced entry, according to a police report.

Clothes off

Some fashion-crazed fiend smashed in a woman’s car window on Butler Street sometime between Aug. 1 and 3 and ran off with piles of clothes.

The woman told cops she left her car parked between Third and Fourth avenues at around 3 pm on Aug. 1, but when she returned at 9 pm on Aug. 3, the passenger-side rear window was smashed in, and the glass-basher took all the clothes she had left in the car, according to a police report. The stolen clothes include slacks, sweaters, shirts, skirts, and some red and green soldier Christmas outfits, cops say.

Bike grab

A punk stole a pricey bike from a guy’s car that was parked on President Street overnight between Aug. 3 and 4.

The slighted biker told cops he left his car, with a black road bike estimated at $8,000 in the trunk, between Seventh and Eighth avenues at around 9 pm on Aug. 3, only to find the treasured speedster missing when he returned at 6 am the following day, according to a police report. There was no broken glass at the scene, and the victim is unsure if the car was unlocked, cops say.
