Fort Greene–Clinton Hill

What a grinch!

Some cold-hearted thief stole a guy’s holiday gifts from his car parked on Saint James Place on Christmas Eve, police said.

The victim told cops he left his car near Greene Avenue at about 7:15 pm on Dec. 24, and when he returned to it on Christmas Day at about 7:30 pm, he realized some bah humbug had swiped an amplifier, navigational system, and other electronics.

The victim said he had forgotten to lock his four-wheeler, according to authorities.

Last-minute shopping

Cops cuffed a guy for swiping packages from a Clermont Avenue apartment building on Christmas Eve, police said.

The suspect ran off with packages of clothes and makeup from the community room of an apartment building near Flushing Avenue at about 5:45 pm, police said.

Twice bad luck

Some baddie ransacked a Waverly Avenue building sometime overnight on Dec. 26, police said.

The good-for-nothing broke into the building near Park Avenue at about 7 pm, damaging a laptop in the process, according to authorities. Some punk had previously stolen a laptop from the same building months before, cops said.

Bye, bye, bicycle

A nogoodnik rode off with a guy’s electric bike he parked inside his Clinton Avenue apartment on Dec. 29, police said.

The victim told cops the criminal broke into his gated apartment near Myrtle Avenue at about 9 pm and stole his Vanmoof electric two-wheeler and other cycling gear, according to authorities.
