Bad spot

A cur broke a window of a woman’s car parked on Bay Street and stole her pocketbook with hundreds of dollars worth of stuff inside on Sept. 10, police said.

The 46-year-old woman told police the criminal smashed the rear passenger side window of her car near Clinton Street at about 4:30 pm and grabbed her black pocketbook with her credit and debit cards, birth certificate, Pennsylvania driver’s license, notary, wedding band, cash, and earrings inside, according to authorities.


Cops cuffed a teen for swiping a woman’s cellphone on Columbia Street on Sept 10.

The 38-year-old woman told police the 15-year-old hit her left arm and then ran off with her Samsung Galaxy phone worth hundreds between Bush and Lorraine streets at about 2 pm, according to a police report.

Delinquent for drugs

Some crook stole a bunch of over-the-counter medication from a Court Street pharmacy on Sept. 9, police said. The baddie stuffed a handbag with Aleve, Tylenol, teeth whitening strips, and Flonase worth more than $300 and fled the store between First and Second places at about 6:22 pm, police said.

No fare!

The 28-year-old victim told police she and the driver got into an argument about the price of the ride, and when she hopped out of the cab near Atlantic Avenue at about 5:20 am, he punched her and then sped off.
