68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights


A prowler snuck into a man’s bedroom and grabbed his stuff while he was in the shower in his 13th Avenue home on March 8, said police.

The man told police he went to take a shower in his apartment between 69th and 70th streets at 7 pm.

He left his bedroom window open and when he came out his wallet — with cash and bank cards — was gone, police said.

Sick thief

A baddie broke into a drugstore on 86th Street on March 5 and made off with meds.

A witness told police that the man entered the pharmacy between Fourth and Fifth avenues at 4:20 pm and grabbed the drugs off the shelf, said police.

The goon ran out with boxes of Claritin, Zyrtec, and Allegra, according to a police report.
