Big box bust

Cops arrested a 31-year-old woman for allegedly nabbing groceries from a Flatbush Avenue department store on Oct. 8.

An employee told police she was toiling away in the big-box retailer near Atlantic Avenue at 4 pm, when she spotted the suspect stuff a bag with nearly $400 worth of clothes, candles, and cleaning supplies, before making a beeline past the register and heading for the exit. But police caught up with the suspect that day, and booked her on petty larceny charges, they said.

Wing-in it

Some miscreant swiped a 25-year-old woman’s pink smartphone from a Atlantic Avenue wing joint on Oct. 3.

The victim told police she was seated near a bar at the eatery near Flatbush Avenue at 11:30 am, when the crook grabbed her custom-pink iPhone, which cops valued at $600.

Tag, you’re it

A punk scrawled graffiti on a Sixth Avenue lamp post sometime before Oct. 3, cops said.

A patrolman said he spotted the multicolored tag on the street fixture between Prospect and Park places at 1:50 pm.

Identity theft

A sticky-fingered thief stole a woman’s identification card inside an Atlantic Avenue electronic store on Oct. 1.

The victim told police she was going through checkout inside the store between Fort Greene Place and South Portland Avenue at 5:50, and left her ID on the counter to attend to her fussy kid, and somehow the crook managed to snatch it from under the clerk’s nose before the woman turned around.
