Wheels of steal

A sneak thief stole a van parked on Baltic Street sometime during the night on Jan. 10.

A 74-year-old man told cops he parked his blue 2011 Chrysler Town and Country minivan between Clinton and Court streets at 6 pm on Jan 10. When he returned at 9 am the next morning, he said, the car was gone.

Police said they did not find the car in the area, and that it wasn’t towed or taken legally from the spot.

Purloined pills

A punk stole medicine from a woman on Kane Street sometime between Jan. 4 and Jan. 12.

The woman said she last saw her Adderall and Xanax pills in her medicine cabinet on Jan. 4. However, on Jan. 12, she noticed the pills had been taken. She told investigators that several people have access to the part of the home where the medicine cabinet is located.

Police said there were no signs of forced entry.

Purse vanishes

A no-goodnik walked off with a woman’s purse on Dwight Street on Jan. 14.

The woman said she went to the bathroom at a house between Verona and Delavan streets at midnight, leaving her purse in the kitchen. But when she returned to the kitchen at 1 am, her Dior purse was gone, as were an iPhone, sunglasses, and $400 inside it, police reported.

Multiple people were present at the house at the time, and there were no signs of forced entry, police said.

iPhone snatch

A jerk took a woman’s iPhone at a store on Beard Street on Jan. 12.

The woman told cops she left her iPhone 6s on a counter at the store near Otsego Street at 8 pm, and when she came back for it at 8:45 pm, it was gone. Investigators said they could not immediately determine who stole the device.
