Park Slope

Scratch and sniffle

Some jerk keyed a man’s car that was parked on Eighth Avenue on Sept. 9.

The victim told police he left his car near President Street at 3 pm, and returned later to find that the passenger door of his ride was damaged with a costly scratch.

Pajama smarty

A thief looted a parcel inside a 10th Street building containing a man’s pajama set and toilet paper on Sept. 27.

The victim told police that he came home to his apartment between Fifth and Sixth avenues at 5:45 pm, and found his delivery had been ripped open and its contents stolen.

Golden haul

A shoplifter nabbed two gold-colored smartphones from a Flatbush Avenue cell store on Sept. 24.

An employee told police that the crook waltzed into the shop between Park and Prospect places at 4:40 pm, and grabbed the pricey phones before fleeing.

On his meds

Cops busted a 29-year-old man for allegedly nabbing more than $140 worth of Theraflu and a birthday bag from an Atlantic Avenue grocery store on Sept. 26.

An employee told police he spotted the suspect inside the supermarket near Fort Greene Place at noon, and watched stunned as he grabbed 18 packs of the flu-fighting product, along with the $5 birthday bag, before breezing past the cash register without paying.
