Nowhere to be found

A jerk swiped a woman’s wallet she had left on a desk inside an Adams Street building sometime between Feb. 26 and March 5, police said.

The victim told police she left her Lo and Sons red wallet on the desk inside the building near Pearl Street and when she looked for it a week later on March 5, it was gone — along with her health insurance card, credit cards, and cash inside, officials said.

No happy ending

A punk took a woman’s phone inside a movie theater near Albee Square on March 6, police said.

The 22-year-old victim went to the bathroom inside the theater near Fleet Street at about 11 pm and when she returned to her seat about 30 minutes later, her iPhone phone was gone, according to authorities.

Get up and grab

Some baddie took a guy’s bag from inside a Nevins Street building during a March 8 meeting, police said.

The 66-year-old victim told police he got up to go to the bathroom inside the building near State Street at about 2:30 pm — leaving his Nike backpack with his wallet, Skullcandy wireless headphone, Swiss Army watch, and “Dunkirk” video disc inside it — and when he sat back down at 3 pm, it was gone, officials said.


A cur rode off with a guy’s bike he had locked near York Street overnight on March 10, police said.

The 35-year-old victim told police he parked his two-wheeler near Adams Street at about noon and when he returned the next day at 11:20 am, his Brompton bicycle, Bern helmet, Brimpton basket, Master Lock bike lock, and Oliver People’s sunglasses were all gone, according to authorities.

Subway sneak

A malefactor swiped a woman’s bag inside a train station near Willoughby Street on Feb. 24, police said.

The woman told police on March 9 that she was sitting on a bench inside the station near Jay Street waiting for a Coney Island-bound F train at about 2 pm and when she got up to board the train and realized 30 minutes later that she did not have her purse with her Android phone, cash, driver’s license, and keys inside it, cops said.
