Package deal

A jerk stole a package of four iPhones from a man’s 13th Avenue home on March 8.

The man told police that FedEx delivered the package containing the pricey smartphones to the door of his home near 71st Street just after 9:35 am, but that the thief nabbed it soon after.

Checked out

A pilferer stole and cashed a $50 check that an Ovington Avenue resident tried to mail from a Fourth Avenue and Bay Ridge Avenue mailbox on Jan. 24, the man reported to police on March 7.

The man, who lives between Fourth and Fifth avenues, reported the theft to police just after 10:45 am.

Knifed up

Police arrested a man who they say was harassing a woman on Seventh Avenue on March 10, and had two knives on him — one of which was sticking out of his pocket in plain view.

The woman told officers she was near 92nd Street at around noon when the man began annoying and scaring her by poking her leg repeatedly, causing her to fear for her safety when she also saw the knife sticking out.

Not a joy ride

Cops cuffed a man who they say drove his 2010 Chevrolet Impala while intoxicated on Third Avenue on March 10.

Officers say they found him at 78th Street just after 3:15 am after a local called in a wellness check for the man, who was asleep in his car. Police found the keys in the ignition and vomit on the floor next to the driver’s side door, according to the report.

They knocked on his window until he woke up and opened the door, telling the officers he felt dizzy, and had pulled over after he left a bar nearby until he felt better to drive, cops said. Police took him to the precinct, where his blood alcohol context was 0.085 — 0.05 over the legal limit, according to authorities.
