Some punk stole $2,290 worth of athletic wear from a Smith Street store on May 3.

Heights burglary

A burglar broke into a Montague Street home on May 3 and stole $8,500 worth of goods while the owners were at work.

Cops cuffed a woman who they say tried to steal items from a Jay Street store on May 4 and threatened to stab a worker who tried to stop her.

The lady was shopping in the store near York Street at 10:30 am when a worker noticed her putting several items in her coat pocket, according to police. The worker confronted the woman and asked her put back the loot and the suspect grabbed her hair, pulled on it, and hissed, “I will stab you with my needle.” Authorities were contacted and arrested the woman.

Subway steal

A prowler stole a drunk guy’s wallet by cutting out his pocket while he was asleep on the A train on May 4.

The victim told police he was hanging out drinking with friends in Manhattan and boarded a Brooklyn-bound A train at 4 am. He fell asleep and awoke at High Street station, then transferred to a Manhattan-bound A train. While he was switching locomotives, he noticed his pants pocket was cut and his wallet was missing, cops said.
