76th Precinct

Carroll Gardens-Cobble Hill–Red Hook


A burglar crept into a Union Street commercial building on Jan. 27 and stole tax forms and other items, police said.

The crook entered the location through the backdoor between Hoyt and Bond streets at about noon and took $40, a guy’s backpack, Amazon Kindle Fire, tax forms, a social security card, and 17 assorted keys, according to authorities.

Swiped from the stoop

A punk swiped two packages from a Warren Street resident’s front porchsometime between Jan. 25 and Jan. 26, police said.

The guy told police that UPS delivered two boxes for him between Henry and Clinton streets but the boxes were gone when he went to get them. The thief stole the two boxes with a Sony camera inside and a kids’ toy soap maker and toy jewelry maker, according to authorities.

Out of sight

A jerk swiped a woman’s purse from a Smith Street bar on Jan. 28, police said.

The 24-year-old victim told cops she put her bag down on a table at the watering hole near Degraw and Sackett streets at 11:45 pm and when she went to pick it up at around 3 am, it was gone — along with the wallet, two credit cards, a New York State identification card, social security card, and iPhone inside.

Watch your watch

A nogoodnik broke into a car parked on Pacific Street and swiped a woman’s bag and designer watch sometime overnight on Jan. 26.

The baddie broke the driver’s-side window of the 2014 Honda parked between Hicks and Henry streets from 7 pm to 4:30 pm the next day and grabbed the woman’s Michael Kors rose-gold watch and tote bag, according to authorities.
