Poster boy

Cops have given up the hunt for the embittered activists who threatened to rip a woman’s “political poster” off the front door of her Prospect Park West apartment on Feb. 8.

The victim told police she was inside her apartment between 13th and 14th streets at 4 pm when she overheard a group of people outside her door threatening to tear down her beloved poster.

Fortunately for her, the small mob managed to restrain itself, and she later poked her head out of her door to find her poster was safe and sound, cops said.

No arrests have been made in the case of the goons who almost ripped down a poster, and the case has been closed.

Cat’s me-owww

Cops have called off the search for the four women who ripped off a hapless cab driver on Nevins Street on Feb. 5.

The victim told police that he picked up the ladies at Hoyt and Bond streets at 2:25 pm, and was heading towards their destination when a catfight broke out.

The cabbie told the girls to take a hike, when one of them suddenly reached over and snatched $45 that he’d stuck in his sun visor, cops said, before all four fled.

No arrests have been made in the case of the cat-fight cab, and the case has been closed.

Parked car pirate

A thief took an iPad out of a man’s car he parked inside an Atlantic Avenue parking lot on Feb. 7.

The victim told police that he left his vehicle in the lot near Fourth Avenue at 1 pm, and returned later to find his tablet had been stolen out of his center console.

Supermarket shoplifter

Cops busted a man and woman who they say ripped off a Third Street supermarket of nearly $1,150 worth of goods on Feb. 10.

An employee told police that the suspects were spotted inside the market between Third and Sixth streets at 9:55 pm, when they attempted to make off with a small fortune in food, clothing, medicine, and other goods.


Cops arrested a man for allegedly stealing a pricey Gibson guitar from a Flatbush Avenue store on Dec. 22.

An employee told police that the suspect was spotted inside the store near Atlantic Avenue at 5 pm, when he stuffed the $4,319 guitar into his jacket and made off without paying.

The store didn’t report the theft until Feb. 6, and the suspect was arrested not long after, cops said.

Reasonable discourse

Cheryl from Windsor Terrace says:
What did the woman's poster say? Was the poster in favor of President Trump? That would make sense considering how thuggish Democrats around here are these days. Talk about intolerant.
