Late-night larcenists are breaking into Sheepshead Bay homes while folks sleep, police say.

A nocturnal nogoodnik rummaged through an E. 2nd Street living room as the resident dozed between 4 am and 6 am on Sept. 28, police said. The sneak rifled through drawers and opened envelopes, but the resident didn’t report anything missing, officials said. She did not activate her security alarm that night because it was a religious holiday, a police report states.

One near-victim at Kings Highway and Ocean Avenue was raiding his fridge at 11:30 pm on Sept. 30 when he saw a hand trying to open the window from the fire escape, a police report states.

A home-invader stole $400 and a cellphone from an apartment at E. 15th Street and Avenue U, a police report states. The cat burglar climbed up on an upsidedown trash can to reach through a bedroom window while the victim was sleeping between 1 am and 6:30 am on Sept. 30, officials said.

A punk pried open a door to a house at E. 19th Street and Avenue T and took cash and electronics while the resident sawed wood, law enforcement sources said. The sneak crept into the home at 1:40 am on Sept. 30, police said.
