Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Closet caper

A perp stole $3,800 in cash from a man’s Ridge Boulevard bedroom closet between Sept. 16-18, the victim reported on Sept. 19.

The man reported the theft at his home at 72nd Street at 2:20 pm, and said that he had left both his closet and bedroom doors unlocked. Police found no signs of forced entry.

Gone by dawn

A good-for-nothing stealthily stole a man’s 2013 Honda Accord from 63rd Street on Sept. 21.

The driver parked the car at the corner of Ninth Avenue at around 1 am. But when he returned the following morning, the car was nowhere to be found. Police found no broken glass, and the driver said he was the only person with any keys to the car.

Tool snatch

A thief stole $1,700 worth of power tools from a contractor working on a project at an 81st Street garage on Sept. 18.

The contractor left his tools at a garage between 11th and 12th Avenues just after 5 pm, and when he returned the next day, they were gone, police said.

Opportunitic crook

A miscreant stole a man’s 2016 Dodge Caravan from its 92nd Street parking spot on Sept. 18, police said.

The man parked his car between Ridge Boulevard and Marine Avenue around 4 pm, and when he returned shortly thereafter, it had disappeared. Police found no broken glass, but the driver said he left his doors unlocked and his key in the vehicle.
