68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Rude wake-up call

A thief broke into a sleeping man’s 14th Avenue apartment through his bedroom window on July 1 — waking up the man before while stealing his cellphone and iPad.

The break-in and theft occurred at the home between 68th Street and Bay Ridge Avenue just before 6 am, when the resident woke up and saw the perp in his room, who promptly fled with the electronics, according to the report.

Smashed for cash

A pilferer smashed the rear passenger-side window of a man’s car parked on Seventh Avenue on June 24 and stole $1,000 from inside.

The man told police he parked the car near Ovington Avenue at midnight and returned to it at 6 am to find the vehicle damaged and his cash missing.

Criminal credit

A phony swindled a Marine Avenue resident out of $715 on June 25 by pretending to be a financial advisor.

The perp called the woman’s home near 92nd Street around 1 pm and told her that they could help her get a low annual percentage rate of charge on a credit card, prompting the woman to hand over her credit insurance information, which allowed the crook to get the cash, according to the report.

No special delivery

A thief stole a package — with two limited-edition T-shirts inside — from a Fourth Avenue building on June 26.

The theft occurred at the building between 79th and 80th streets around 10:30 pm, according to the report.

Build a better door

A crook broke into a 76th Street home through an unlocked rear door on June 30.

The baddie entered the home between Fort Hamilton Parkway and 10th Avenue at around 11:45 am, police reported. The rear door was unlocked because the home was under construction, according to the report, which also noted that he did not take anything.
