Shoplifters busted

Cops cuffed a man and woman who they say tried to steal shampoo from a Smith Street pharmacy on March 13.

An employee said the pair entered the store near Warren Street at 1:25 pm and took shampoo, chocolate, and ice cream from the shelves and put them in a bookbag. A security guard noticed they were trying to leave without paying, and detained them until police arrived, officers reported.

Police said they arrested the two in Carroll Gardens and that they were charged with petty larceny and criminal possession of stolen property.

Van break-in

A jerk stole tools from a parked van on Loraine Street on March 11.

The victim said he left tools in his white van he parked between Columbia and Hicks streets at 2:35 pm, but when he returned at 3:15 pm, they were gone. The thief took a drill, a saw, and a grinder, police reported.

Change thief

Officers arrested a woman who they say stole change from atop a washing machine at a Hicks Street laundromat on March 11.

The victim said the woman took the $10 worth of change at 9:20 am inside the building between W. Ninth and Mill streets.

Police said they looked at video footage and talked with the victim, and later arrested a Sunset Park woman. She was charged with petty larceny and criminal possession of stolen property.
