They’re dark and dirty deeds.

A rogue used night-vision goggles to break into the laundry room of a Williamsburg apartment building and swipe a loaded change machine and television last month, authorities say.

The sneak used a tool to open the Maujer Street building’s front door just before 5 am on Jan. 28, then went into the communal clothes-washing area, where he pried the flat-screen and a machine containing $600 off the wall, and also pocketed another $300, according to a police report and security footage.

Police ask anyone with information about the be-goggled goon to call (800) 577–8477, submit tips at www.nypdcrimestoppers.com, or text 274637 followed by TIP577. All calls are strictly confidential.

Reach deputy editor Ruth Brown at rbrown@cnglocal.com or by calling (718) 260–8309. Follow her at twitter.com/rbbrown.

Why is there no more Greenpoint crime blotter?
Excuse me if I missed an explanation.
