Bathroom heist

Someone took a woman’s white gold diamond ring she left on the sink inside a Joralemon Street building on June 30.

The lady told police she placed her ring near the faucet in the building by Court Street at 11:10 am and left the restroom. She remembered leaving it behind five minutes later, and returned to find it was gone.

She viewed surveillance footage but it was poor and didn’t show the faces of the people leaving the building, according to a report.

Preppy pilferers

A pair of thieves stole Polo clothing from a Fulton Street store on June 7.

The two filchers walked into the department store by Livingston Street at 4:16 pm, with one taking out a blue bag from a backpack and placing it on the ground near the clothing shelves, police said.

The other nogoodnik then removed a stack of $1,700 worth of Polo shirts from the shelves and placed it in the bag, while the other took 10 hats from the display rack and also put them in the bag, authorities said. The duo then walked out of the store, according to cops.

Soccer snake

Some sneak snatched a bag from a locked locker in Brooklyn Bridge Park on July 7 when its owner went to go play soccer.

The goal kicker secured his bag in a locker on Pier 5 and then went to play, returning at 9:30 pm to find his bag — containing his phone, credit cards, driver’s license, and keys — had been taken, authorities said.


An unlicensed taxi driver drove away with his passenger’s phone after he got out to use a cash machine on Fourth Avenue on May 28.

The victim took the unregulated taxi to a deli near Dean Street at 2 am, and stepped inside to get some money. But when he came back outside, the driver quickly drove off — with his iPhone still in the car, according to a report.


A creep mugged a guy as he was opening his Sands Street apartment door on July 7.

The victim told police he was opening the door in his building by Gold Street at 10 pm when the bruiser pushed and punched him in the face. The jerk then went into his pockets and removed $800, his phone, and two gold chain necklaces, authorities said.
