68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Jewelry heist

A woman reported nearly $12,000 in missing jewelry on July 25.

The victim told police she noticed the lock of her 14th Avenue apartment at Bay Ridge Avenue was tampered with two weeks ago, but shrugged it off, and only realized the lost jewelry when she opened her jewelry box on July 25, police said.

The burglar lifted several watches, rings, bracelets, and bangles — and the tenant mentioned she was facing her landlord in court proceedings, according to police.

Gone fishing

A crook managed to hook a $1,500 money order out of a mailbox in June.

Police said the thief retrieved a money order from a sidewalk mailbox on the corner of Fourth Avenue and 72nd Street back in June, and filled in his own name to cash it. The victim went to police on July 26 after his rent office told him they never received his monthly payment.

Fool’s gold

Police arrested a robber who allegedly yanked a $300 necklace off a man on July 27.

The victim said he was robbed around 3:10 pm on Bay Ridge Avenue between Fourth and Fifth Avenues, according to the police report.

Police said that the alleged robber, who was arrested later that day, snatched the man’s gold chain and left him with minor injuries.

Window of opportunity

A nogoodnick swiped $2,500 worth of electronics from a Fourth Avenue home on July 27.

The victim told police that his home at Ovington Avenue was busted into at around 7 am while he was out of town. Police said the burglar broke in through the window and stole two laptops, an Apple TV device, a GoPro camera, a telescope, a portable speaker, a watch, and sunglasses.

Modern day pirate

A thief got into a woman’s house and stole her monocular telescope, among other things, on July 29.

The burglar got into a woman’s Ovington Avenue apartment between Fifth and Sixth Avenues at around 7:30 am and lifted her rings, Tiffany necklace, and monocular, totaling $3,500, police said. The woman, who was out running errands, told police she returned to discover the items missing, but found no signs of forced entry.
