68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

It’s Audi there!

An opportunistic thief stole a 2018 Audi Q7 valued at $55,670 from the parking lot of its 65th Street dealership at some point between Nov. 10 and Nov. 20, according to police.

An employee left the unlocked car with the keys in the ignition in the lot of the dealership between Sixth and Seventh avenues at noon on Nov. 10. By 3 pm on Nov. 20, he realized the car was gone, he told police.

Electric feel

A crook swindled a Dyker Heights woman out of nearly $2,000 when he called her pretending to be a rep from Con Edison when she was inside a 13th Avenue business on Nov. 22, according to police.

The perp called the woman at the business between 80th and 81st streets around 12:30 pm, and told her she owed $1,925 on her electric bill and that he would cut off her electricity if she did not pay.

Out of office

A punk stole a woman’s wallet from an 85th Street office on Nov. 17.

The woman realized her wallet — containing her driver’s license, two credit cards, a debit card, a gift card, and cash — was missing from the office space between Third and Fourth avenues at around 10:15 am, she told police. She cancelled all of her credit cards after she discovered it was missing, and the credit card company told her that the crook had already tried to use her cards multiple times.


A no-goodnik distracted an employee at a Fifth Avenue deli on Nov. 24 before reaching over the register and stealing her pricey iPhone-plus, two credit cards, a MetroCard, and a health insurance card.

The miscreant stole the items from the deli between 81st and 82nd streets between 2:20 and 2:35 pm, the woman told police. She cancelled her credit cards after he made off with them, according to the report. Police are reviewing surveillance cameras in the area.

Snagged her bag

A good-for-nothing stole a woman’s bag off the floor when she was shopping for clothes at a Third Avenue thrift shop on Nov. 24.

The woman put her bag down when she was browsing the racks at the shop between 68th Street and Bay Ridge Avenue between 12:30 and 1 pm, according to the report. When she returned to the spot where she left it, she realized the bag — along with her driver’s license, ID card, three credit cards, set of keys, and $400 in cash — were gone. Police are re

viewing cameras in the area.
