Theft in black

Bandits with a particular sense of fashion stole several black shirts from a Flatbush Avenue on April 19.

Police say the looters entered the store near Avenue U around 6:10 pm and took several designer shirts all in the same color off store shelves. The sneaks left the location just minutes later with their $2,167 worth of ill-gotten duds, according to cops.

Prowling theft

A marauder stole gadgets and some gym gear from a car parked on New York Avenue sometime overnight on April 21.

The owner told police that he parked his vehicle near Avenue J around 3 am, and later that day at noon he discovered his gym bag missing, which included his portable media player, headphones, a face shield, and some cigars, according to cops.

Left unattended

A sly thief snatched valuables from a woman’s bag at an Avenue U department store on April 22.

The victim told cops that she put her bag down in the store near Flatbush Avenue around 2:30 pm and left it unattended. At around 6:30 pm she retrieved her tote but noticed several items she had inside — including jewelry, debit cards, and identification cards — were missing.

Mom robbed

Someone swiped a woman’s bag from her car parked on Avenue K on April 22.

The woman told police she had just parked her vehicle near E. 46th Street around the 7 am and went inside to get her kids ready for school. When she returned to her car about 10 minutes later, she found the passenger-side window smashed and the bag she left sitting on front seat gone.

Cops said the punk got away with two smartphones, a bank card, and a credit card, which were inside the bag, according to the report.

Not so fast

Cops busted a man who they say tried to walk off an Avenue U department store on April 19 with a laundry bag full of items.

Police said the man entered the retailer near Flatbush Avenue around 9:59 pm and placed about $2,700 worth of items into a black laundry bag and tried to leave. Store security stopped him and also discovered a screwdriver he had on him, according to police.

Cops apprehended the suspect minutes later, according to the report.

Shop and lifted

Cops said the lady walked into the store near Flatbush Avenue around 8:40 pm, lifted several garments, and left the store minutes later. Cops caught up with the woman at 10 pm and apprehended her, according to the report.
