Charge it

The victim told police the that he was arguing with the suspect about a recent purchase when the suspect nabbed the credit card reader from the counter, tearing its wires, and ran out the store at Hoyt Street at 12:30 p.m.

The bodega worker followed the defendant who then whacked him in the arm with the card machine before smashing it on the ground, according to cops.

Police arrested the man 30 minutes later at the nearby Hoyt-Schermerhorn streets subway station and slapped him with felony robbery charges, according to the authorities.

Chill bro

A gun-toting brigand held a man up on Sands Street on Sept. 6.

Point of no return

A scam artist stole a rental car from a State Street dealership on July 8.

An employee of the rental chain told police that the swindler rented the 2018 Ford Mustang due back on Aug. 8 using a fake identification and credit card at the store near Court Street.

The shyster’s credit card was declined and the dealership made several unsuccessful attempts to get in touch with him, according to the authorities.
