78th Precinct

Park Slope

Whiz kid

A cop busted a man peeing between cars on a Coney Island-bound F train near Ninth Street on Aug. 8.

The officer claims he spotted the suspect riding between cars near the station by Fourth Avenue at 1:30 am, and, upon investigating, he slid open a door to find him urinating onto the tracks.

After placing the suspect under arrest, the patrolman gave him a pat down and discovered a glass pipe containing cocaine residue, police said.

“I just use it for marijuana,” the suspect allegedly said.

Meat thief

Police collared a woman who they say lifted meat from an Atlantic Avenue grocery store on Aug. 11.

A rep for the store told police that the woman allegedly stuffed seven “packets of meat” from the market between Fort Greene Place and S. Portland Avenue into a bag at 1:55 pm and tried to make a run for it.

Illicit valet

A crook drove off in a man’s 2012 Ford Fusion parked on Butler Street on Aug. 9.

The victim told police he parked his ride near Third Avenue at 3:30 pm, and returned later that evening to find he was short one vehicle.

Bike bandit

A bandit took a man’s bike that was locked to a signpost on Eighth Avenue on Aug. 13.

The cyclist chained his two-wheeler to the sign between First and Second streets at 11 pm, and returned the next day to find it missing, cops said.

Going postal

A parcel thief swiped a package containing a Dell laptop off a woman’s Carroll Street stoop on Aug. 6.

The victim reported to police that she never received the package destined for her home between Sixth and Seventh avenues at 2 pm, and suspects it was nabbed by some fiendish postal hijacker.

Dirty crook

Cops busted a man who they say stole soap from an Atlantic Avenue grocery store on Aug. 9.

The suspect allegedly grabbed an armful of Dove soap from the market between Fort Greene Place and S. Portland Avenue at 6:55 pm, before trying to skip past the register without paying, police said.

Car scratcher

Some jerk roughed up a woman’s car she left on Pacific Street on Aug. 10.

The victim told authorities she parked her ride between Sixth and Carlton avenues at 7:05 pm, and retuned an hour later to find her rear door all beat up with dents and scratches.

Short-sighted steal

Cops cuffed a man who they say nabbed designer eyeglasses from a Seventh Avenue optician’s office on Aug. 9.

The suspect took four pairs of Dolce Gabana specs from the clinic between Sixth and Seventh streets at 5:10 pm, a doctor’s office rep told police.
