Cable’s out

Some kook berated, threatened, and shoved a cable guy outside his Carroll Street office on Aug. 11.

The victim told police he was outside the cable company offices between Third and Fourth avenues at 5:25 pm, when the wacko suddenly shoved him and shouted threats.

Stogie steal

A thief looted a man’s car he parked on 14th Street on Aug. 14, taking a box of cigars.

The victim told police he left his ride between Fifth and Sixth avenues at 12:50 pm, and returned following a well-deserved lunch to find his desert, a $200 box of cigars, was stolen.

Bad look

A 45-year-old woman was arrested for allegedly stealing more than $600 worth of cosmetics and jewelry from a Flatbush Avenue department store on Aug. 11.

An employee told police the suspected waltzed into the retail juggernaut near Atlantic Avenue at 11:40 pm, and went about collecting a small fortune worth of trinkets and makeup.

The suspect breezed past the register on her way out of the store, and was busted that night on petty larceny charges, cops said.

Jacked

A thief drove off with a woman’s $30,000 Rav 4 she left on Berkeley Place on Aug. 14.

The victim told police that she parked her Toyota between Seventh and Eighth avenues at 11 pm, and returned the following day to find an empty spot where her car had been.

Bad fare

Three men were arrested for allegedly stealing a taxi driver’s cellphone from his cab on Atlantic Avenue on Aug. 15.

The victim told police that he was inside his taxi near Flatbush Avenue at 12:10 am, when the suspects approached his cab as if looking for a ride.

After opening the front passenger-side door, however, one the men nabbed the victim’s cellphone from the center console and sped off with his friends, cops said.

“Don’t go after us,” one of the suspects allegedly snarled. “You better stay in the car.

Police rounded up the suspects later that night, and the cabbie showed up to ID them as the thieves, according to police.

Amid a search, cops found the suspects in possession of weed, and a solitary crack rock, police said.
