Bye, bye, bikes

Bandits pedaled away with bicycles in two separate incidents. Here’s the rundown:

• A crook ran off with a guy’s bike parked on Luquer Street sometime between May 26 and 27, police said.

The victim locked up his blue Cannondale bicycle near Clinton Street at 2 pm. When he returned the next day at 1:30 pm it was gone, officials said.

• Some jerk swiped a man’s handle bars from his bike parked on Summit Street on June 5, police said.

The guy told police he chained up his two-wheeler to the rack near Columbia Street at 2 pm and when he returned at 5:40 pm, his handle bars, brake, and shifter were all missing, according to authorities.

Jewels snatcher

A nogoodnik stole a woman’s antique jewelry from her home on Clinton Street on June 5, police said.

The malefactor climbed through the fire escape on her building near Union Street sometime between 10 am and 7:30 pm, causing damage to her window in the process, and grabbed her gold antique rings, officials said.

Makeup marauder

Cops cuffed a woman for swiping a bunch of makeup from a Smith Street store on June 1.

A store manager saw the suspect put $78 worth of eye makeup in her clothes and try to leave the store between Warren and Baltic streets at 2:22 pm, according to authorities.

Caught in the act

Police arrested a teen for breaking into cars parked along Woodhull Street and stealing some items from the glove compartment on June 1.

The 17-year-old rode along on his bike and swiped a few things from the cars parked between First and Second places at about 3 am, according to authorities.
