Phone plunder

Some filcher snatched a woman’s phone from her hand while she was standing on the Coney Island-bound D train platform at Atlantic Avenue Terminal on Sept. 13.

The lady was standing with her mobile device in her hand in the station by Pacific Street at 12:15 am when the jerk grabbed it from behind and fled, authorities said.

Over and out

Two thieves swiped a pair of phones from a Fulton Street mobile phone store on Sept. 12.

The jerks entered the shop near Jay Street at 1:34 pm, removed the iPhones, and fled, according to a report.

School break

Authorities are searching for a baddie who they say broke into a Pierrepont Street school and ransacked its classrooms on Sept. 13.

Cameras caught the creeper entering the learning house by Clinton Street at 7 pm wearing a face mask. He then found keys inside of the main lobby desk and opened classrooms, going through several drawers and desks, according to a report.

Bad time

A crook stole $2,745 of fancy watches from a Water Street jewelry store on Sept. 16.

The sneak put three watches and one strap into his pocket while he was browsing the shop near Old Dock Street and fled, police said.
