68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Parent theft apparent

A lowlife parent stole $14,550 worth of a woman’s jewelry from her Fourth Avenue home when they were at the apartment for a birthday party for the woman’s 6-year-old son on Nov. 5, according to police. The victim reported to police on Nov. 17 that she had about ten people over to her home for the party between 79th and 80th streets. She didn’t know the parents before the soiree, she told police, and her jewelry box and bedroom door were unlocked — even though the latter was closed. When she opened the box to pick out jewelry to wear nearly two weeks later, she noticed the jewels were missing, she told police.

Phony friend

A no-goodnik stole his friend’s MacBook Pro — valued at $2,000 — from the back of his car on 90th Street after his friend gave him a ride to the train station on Oct. 31.

When the friend returned back home at 8:15 pm after he had dropped off his phony friend between Ridge Boulevard and Third Avenue around 4:30 pm, he realized his computer was missing from his bag in his trunk, he reported to police on Nov. 14.

Steal on wheels

A miscreant stole a man’s 2017 Nissan Pathfinder — along with his HP laptop inside, valued at $1,500 — from its 73rd Street parking spot on Nov. 17, the man told police.

The man parked the car between Fort Hamilton Parkway and Tenth Avenue around 3:20 am, and when he returned 20 minutes later, the car was already gone. Police are reviewing cameras in the area, according to the report.

Not-so-picture perfect

A lying lout stole a man’s brand-new Canon camera near the man’s 64th Street home on Nov. 9.

The man ordered the camera on Nov. 5, and the poser signed for the package at the home between 11th and 12th avenues four days later, just before 2 pm — a sneaky move the original purchaser discovered after he never received the package and then tracked it online to figure out what had happened.
