Package prowler

A pilferer swiped a bunch of packages from a delivery truck on Montague Street on Dec. 29, police said.

The driver told police he hopped out of the truck near Cadman Plaza West at about 3 pm when some nogoodnik jumped in and ran off with five packages, including a book, jacket, sweater, cleaning products, and medicine, officials said.

Struck again

A prowler also stole a bunch of packages from the lobby of a Bergen Street apartment on Dec. 29, police said.

The punk stuffed the packages into a white plastic bag inside the apartment between Bond and Nevins streets at about 4:35 pm, officials said. A passerby yelled at the sneak, but he ran out through the backdoor, according to authorities.

Swipe and steal

A punk stole a woman’s wallet in the Hoyt Street subway station on Dec. 26 and charged her credit cards, police said.

The 39-year-old victim told police she went through the turnstile in the station near Fulton Street at about 1 pm when she realized her wallet was gone, according to authorities. The purse snatcher charged a total of $751.90 to the woman’s credit and debit cards, and also took her school safety identification card, and Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association card, officials said.

Holiday shoplifting

A scamp stole clothes from a Fulton Street department store on Dec. 27, police said.

The baddie took jeans, a sweater, jacket, and shirt and fled the store near Hoyt Street without paying at about 10:30 am, according to authorities.

Caught in the act

Cops cuffed a guy for grabbing someone’s wallet on Fourth Avenue on Dec. 27, police said.

The victim told police the 60-year-old suspect took his wallet with his identification card, MetroCard, and cash between Dean and Bergen streets at about 12:30 pm, according to authorities.

Bathroom break pickpocket

A wretch took a guy’s wallet inside an Atlantic Avenue diner on Dec. 29, police said.

The victim told police he had gotten up from the bar inside the eatery near Smith Street to go to the bathroom at about 5 pm, and when he came back, someone was sitting in his seat and his wallet was missing from his jacket pocket, officials said.

The jerk took the guy’s jack Spade wallet with his four credit cards inside and charged one of them at a Flatbush Avenue and Prospect Place liquor store, officials said.

Dropped evidence

A pair of baddies threatened a bodega employee on Smith Street with a gun and ran out with a wad of cash on Dec. 27, police said.

The victim told police he was inside the deli near Bergen Street at about 4:30 am when the two villains, one woman in a hood and the other man in a black ski mask, came in, brandished a silver gun, and told him to get down on the ground, officials said.

The tough grabbed the cash register and emptied out $700 and both of the good-for-nothings fled, officials said. The snake dropped her ski mask on the street near the crime scene, according to authorities.
