Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

My car is on fire

An arsonist set fire to a car parked on 80th Street on Jan. 17, said police.

The baddie set a black German luxury car left between Shore Road and Narrows Avenue ablaze at 6:30 pm, according to a police report.

The fire-starter fled the scene on foot, officials said.

Personal grooming

A thief ransacked an 86th Street drugstore on Feb. 9 and made off with $2,600 worth of razor blades and teeth whitening strips, officials said.

The man broke into the pharmacy between Fourth and Fifth Avenues at 6:45 pm, authorities said. The miscreant grabbed Crest white strips and Gillette razor blades, according to a police report.

Jewel thief

A burglar swiped jewelry and cash from a Fourth Avenue apartment on Feb. 11, police said.

The woman living in the apartment between 79th and 80th streets told police that she didn’t know how the man got in, but he busted the lock on her bedroom door. He fled with three designer watches, a pair of diamond earrings, and $400.
