Broken glass

A jerk broke the windshield of a woman’s car parked in a garage on Seabring Street on Feb. 5, police said.

The woman told police she parked her 1996 Chrysler between Van Brunt and Richard streets at 9 am, and when she returned a little before 1 pm, saw that a baddie had broken her windshield and swiped her airbags and radio, according to authorities.

What a pain

Cops cuffed an 86-year-old man for swiping packets of Advil from a Court Street store on Feb. 25.

The oldster tried to leave the store between First and Second places with a bunch of pain relief tabs at 12:14 pm, according to authorities.

Big break

A nogoodnik broke into a woman’s home on Columbia Street sometime between Feb. 21 and Feb. 23 and swiped her electronics, police said.

The woman told police she returned to her home between Mill Street and Centre Mall after two days away, and noticed some sneak had stolen her Samsung television, her touch-screen computer, and her speakers. There were no signs of forced entry, according to authorities.

Stolen fanny

A baddie took a guy’s fanny pack he had left on his bike parked on Union Street on Feb. 22, police said.

The guy left his bike outside his apartment between Bond and Nevins streets at 10 am to go up to his apartment, and when he came back down at 11:30 am, his red fanny pack was gone, along with his Florida driver’s license inside, according to authorities.

Caught ’em

Cops cuffed a 17-year-old man for kicking and punching a guy in the face and trying to steal his cash on Clinton Street on Feb. 18.

The suspect assaulted the guy between Centre Mall and Bush streets at 5:15 pm, causing bruising and cuts to his face. The suspect told the victim to “empty your pockets” and tried to swipe his cash, according to authorities.
