Pick back pocket

A good-for-nothing stole a man’s iPhone from his pocket at a store on Beard Street on Feb. 17.

The 35-year-old said he was in the store near Otsego Street at 7 pm, but when he returned home at 11 pm, he realized his iPhone 7-Plus was no longer in his back pocket.

Police said the man determined the phone was in the Bronx by using the Find My iPhone application.

Tools heist

A jerk stole a glutton of tools from a man at a Bush Street building sometime overnight on Feb. 15.

The man said he left the tools in the maintenance room of the building near Columbia Street at 4:30 pm, but when he returned at 8 am the next day, noticed they were gone. He said the thief took his tool bag, vice grip, knives, electric drill, wire cutter, screwdriver, and straightedge.

Stolen iPods

A punk stole a man’s iPods from a house on Bond Street sometime between Feb. 12 and 15.

The 42-year-old male victim said that two iPods and one iPod mini were removed from the desk of his home office between Sackett and Union streets at some point during the three days.

Police said there are no signs that someone broke into the house.
