68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Not so safe

A burglar ripped off an event hall on 86th Street sometime over the weekend of Nov. 6, police say.

A worker there said he left the hall at the corner of 13th Avenue around 3:30 pm, and when he came back on Monday morning he found someone had got into the main office and drilled into the safe there. The pillager made away with $1,570.

Honda hijacking

Police arrested a man who they say led them on a dangerous car chase in a vehicle he stole from a Fourth Avenue dealership on Nov. 10.

A salesman at the dealership at 88th Street told police the suspect walked in around 10 am and told him he wanted to rent a car, so they hopped in a 2012 Honda Pilot for a test drive. But they did not get far before the thief told the salesman he had a gun, pushed him out of the car, and sped off, police reported.

Not long after, police saw him allegedly blow a red light and hop on the highway, which unfortunately for him was packed with traffic. Police tried to pull him out of the car but the man rammed his way through traffic, almost hitting a number of officers, according to officials.

He managed to get off the highway and almost take out some pedestrians before police were able to stop him. They did not find a gun on him.
