Not horsin’ around

Some crook stole a guy’s horse statue from his S. Oxford Street apartment on April 15, police said.

The 67-year-old victim told cops he invited two guests to his apartment near Lafayette Avenue at about 6 pm and when they left at 11 pm, his bronze steed was gone, according to authorities.

Up in smoke

A louse swiped a bunch of cigarettes from a Myrtle Avenue pharmacy on April 18, police said.

The baddie broke into the store near Adelphi Street at about 1 am and ran out with several different packs of smokes, according to authorities.

What a tool!

A baddie stole a bunch of tools from an Atlantic Avenue construction site sometime overnight on April 15, police said.

The sneaks entered through the locked gates on the site near Grand Avenue sometime between 1 pm and 8 am and ran off with a Bosch breaking hammer and DeWalt grinder, officials said.

Not so pie-us

A punk stole a woman’s wallet on Flatbush Avenue Extension on April 9 and used it to buy pizza, police said.

The 31-year-old victim told cops on April 16 that she realized her wallet — with her credit cards, debit cards, identification card, MetroCard inside — was missing near Fulton Street at about 2:45 pm, and that some jerk had ordered $45 worth of pizza from Dominos, cops said.
