In the weed

Cops arrested a 45-year-old man for allegedly smoking weed outside a Warren Street housing building on Feb. 28.

The arresting officer said he spotted the man puffing away on the weed cigar between Third and Fourth avenues at 7:40 pm, and claims the man tossed the blunt upon spotting the cop.

But the patrolman found the drugs on the ground nearby, and cuffed the suspect on possession charges, cops said.

Bike bandit

A thief rode off with a man’s bike he chained up outside his Second Street home on Feb. 22.

The victim told police he chain-locked his mountain bike to a chain-link fence outside his building between Fifth and Sixth avenues at 5 pm, and returned the following morning to find his two-wheel ride stolen.

Bad sport

An employee allegedly stole an estimated $46,000 worth of merchandise from a Flatbush Avenue sporting goods store from Aug. 4 to Feb. 19.

When police finally caught the suspect, who worked at the store beween Atlantic Avenue and Pacific Street, they found his car stuffed with more than $1,700 worth of jackets and sneakers.

Police booked the man on Feb. 27, charging him with grand larceny by way of dishonest employment, cops said.

Trash talk

A dispute over trash amongst residents of a Fifth Avenue apartment building turned violent on Feb. 18.

The victim, 57, told police the suspect threw trash against the door of her apartment between Degraw Street and Berkley Place at 7:30 pm, while screaming, “If next time you don’t put the trash outside, I will do something bad to you!”
