Pocket of opportunity

A pack of punks stole $1,000 from a drunk man’s jacket pocket on Eighth Avenue on March 11.

The theft occurred between 58th and 59th streets just after 11:30 pm, and the thieves fled on foot on 59th Street towards Seventh Avenue afterwards, the victim told police.

Side hustle

A 34th Street warehouse employee stole goods from his place of work to sell on eBay and other sites, a fellow employee reported to police on March 5.

The disgruntled worker stole an estimated $2,300 worth of postcards and T-shirts from the warehouse at Second Avenue, the other employee reported around 11:25 am.

Pass the pistol

Police arrested a pair of men who they say had a loaded gun at a Fifth Avenue store on March 6.

Officers nabbed the duo between 61st and 62nd streets at around 2:40 pm.

High gone

A bandit stole a woman’s 2017 Toyota Highlander from its 50th Street parking spot sometime overnight on March 10.

The woman told police she left her car between Second and Third avenues, at 6 pm on March 10, and found it missing from its spot at 1 pm the following day, according to the report.

Didn’t get far

Police arrested a pair of goons who they say kicked and broke a glass door at a Fourth Avenue deli on March 11 before attacking the bodega employee.

The duo struck the store between 53rd and 54th streets just before 2 am, shattering the glass door before punching and kicking the victim, causing lacerations to his left hand and finger and redness and swelling to his head, police reported.

The pair fled on foot after, but the employee identified them with officers present about an hour later, at Sixth Avenue and 51st Street, according to authorities.
