Pot head

A thief stole $80 worth of pots and pans from the lobby of a Fifth Avenue apartment building on Dec. 1.

The victim told police a delivery guy had dropped off his Amazon order for kitchenware at his building between Second and Third streets at 6 pm, but he found the package stolen when he came down at 9 am the next morning.

Party mix

Cops arrested a man for allegedly possessing crack and weed after they caught him trespassing inside a Third Avenue housing project on Dec. 2.

Patrolmen reported spotting the suspect loitering inside the public housing building near Bond Street at 4:25 pm, and that they found the drugs on him after patting him down.

Tired out

Cops arrested two teens for allegedly stealing tires off a man’s bike on Fifth Avenue on Nov. 28.

The arresting officers said they were between Degraw and Sackett streets at 4:10 pm, when they spotted the suspects in the act of removing both the front and rear tires of the victim’s bike.
