Thief steal tires right off cars!

68th Precinct

Bay Ridge–Dyker Heights

Rim jobs

Thieves stole wheels off at least two cars last week:

• Wheel bandits swiped a set of fancy rims and tires off a car on 77th Street overnight on Nov. 16. The victim told cops that she parked between Fort Hamilton Parkway and 10th Avenue at around 9 pm, but all four tires were gone the next morning.

• Thieves took two wheels from a car on Shore Road overnight on Nov. 14. The victim said that she had left her Audi between 98th and 99th streets at 9 pm, but they were gone by 7 the next morning.

Sneak thief

Thieves sneaked into a Fort Hamilton Parkway apartment over the weekend on Nov. 11 and swiped nearly $4,000 in goods and cash.

The victim told cops that he left his home between 95th and 97th streets at 2:30 on Nov. 10 and returned on Monday morning to find that burglars had sneaked through his front door and made off with his watches, iPod, laptop, clothes and cash.

Pick and grab

Burglars picked the lock on a 63rd Street apartment on Nov. 17 and made off with jewelry.

The victim told cops that she left her house between 11th and 12th avenues at 7:30 am. When she returned less than 12 hours later, her front door was unlocked, and a gold watch and pendant were missing.

Beatles fans

Thieves pinched $1,000 from an 85th Street apartment on Nov. 17 after they came in through the bathroom window.

The victim told cops that he left his house between Third and Fourth avenues at 7:20 am. When he returned at 4:30, he found his bathroom window open, and $1,000 missing.

Bar bawl

A light-fingered thief swiped a woman’s purse at an 88th Street bar on Nov. 20.

The victim told cops that she set her bag on a shelf at the bar between Fourth and Fifth avenues at 2 am, but it was gone when she looked for it later.
