78th Precinct

Park Slope


Police caught a green-thumb who allegedly stole a woman’s composting bin from President Street on March 21.

The victim left her brown can out near Eighth Avenue around 10 pm for pickup and when she went to go bring it inside the next day around 8 pm, she discovered it was gone.

Roof jumper

Cops cuffed a guy who they say trespassed in a Prospect Place building by jumping roofs to get onto the property on March 22.

The suspect hopped onto the roof of the building near Carlton Avenue around 4 pm and entered the residence through an unlocked roof door before police arrested him, according to a report.

Park plunder

Officers nabbed a man who broke into a car as it was parked on Flatbush Avenue and allegedly stole its owner’s paperwork on March 20.

The man broke the car’s passenger-side window while it was in Prospect Park between 2:30 pm and 6:30 pm, authorities said.

Friend faux pas

Authorities arrested a woman who they say refused to give her friend’s phone back after she left it at her Sterling Place apartment on March 19.

The victim told police she was visiting her friend near Sixth Avenue and left her phone there by accident around 5:30 am. She asked for it back several times, but the frenemy told her she was not going to give it back, according to a report.

Daytime break-in

Cops slapped cuffs on a guy who broke into a 13th Street apartment and stole a woman’s wallet on March 22.

The suspect plowed through the locked front door of the residence between Third and Fourth avenues while its tenant was out for the day and lifted the wallet, which contained her credit cards. Later, police found the suspect in possession of the same wallet, authorities said.
