76th Precinct

Carroll Gardens-Cobble Hill–Red Hook

Car shopping

Cops cuffed a teen for swiping cash and electronics from a car parked on Carroll Street on June 1.

The 17-year-old rummaged through the 2012 Mazda parked near the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway and grabbed a debit card, iPhone, headphones, cash, and white leather gloves from it between 2:30 am and 3:45 am, police said. He also admitted to doing the same to other nearby cars, officials said.

The teen was the same suspect who tried to open and steal from cars parked along Woodhull Street between First and Second places on June 1, according to authorities.

Wired it all go?

Some nogoodnik swiped a bunch of commercial copper wire from a site near Woodhull Street sometime between April 3 and June 12, police said.

A Con Ed employee told police the jerk cut and removed 48 feet of the wire from the site near Columbia Street, according to authorities.

Designer dud

A cur grabbed a woman’s expensive bag and accessories while she was in the bathroom at a Smith Street bar on June 10, police said.

The 25-year-old woman told police she left her bag on the back of her chair while she went to the loo inside the watering hole near President Street at about 8:30 pm, and when she got back, it was gone.

The jerk ran off with her black Coach backpack with a Tory Burch wallet inside, three bank cards, and a Tory Burch key lanyard, according to authorities.

Five-finger deal

Cops arrested a suspect who they say swiped a handful of items from a Smith Street store on June 10.

The suspect took the products from the shelves of the store between President and Union streets at 5:32 pm, put them in a bag, and tried to leave without paying, according to authorities.

Vicious act

Police cuffed a guy for striking a woman in the back of her head with a cane on Court Street on June 9.

The 45-year-old woman was between Degraw and Kane streets at about 8:30 am when the 56-year-old suspect smacked her in the head with a metal cane, officials said. Emergency responders took her to Methodist Hospital, officials said.
