The victim, 79, told police she left her car in the parking lot of the hardware store near 12th Street at 4:30 pm, and returned a half hour later to find her city handicap pass stolen.

Investigators found no sign of a break in, and have closed the case without any arrests, according to police.

Universal locksmith

Cops arrested an alleged bike thief after he was caught with “burglar’s tools” on President Street on May 23.

The arresting officer reported he spotted the suspect fiddling with a bike parked near Fourth Avenue at 1 am, and pulled him over after he rode illegally on the sidewalk against traffic.

Upon searching the man, the cop discovered a pair of pliers, a wrench, and an open container of beer, before later finding there was an open warrant out for his arrest, according to police.

Brick head

A vandal threw a brick through the window of a man’s car parked on Dean Street on May 25.

Police have closed the case without making any arrests, cops said.

Cannon crook

A thief rode off with a man’s pricey Cannondale bike he parked on Seventh Avenue on May 25.
