The victim told police he left his home between Columbia and Van Brunt streets at 6 pm. When he returned at 6 the next morning, his two Trek bikes, worth $2,300 and $1,500, were missing from the building’s lobby. His $29 helmet and two speedometers — each worth $15 — were also missing.

Laptop down

When he returned at around 3 pm, he discovered that his Sony laptop, worth $1,600, was missing.

Robbed register

A burglar broke into a restaurant on Degraw Street on Jan. 12 — nabbing cash and the register.

Employees told cops that they locked up the restaurant near Tompkins Place at 11:30 pm.

When they returned shortly after noon the next day, the front window had been busted and the cash register, which the owner told police had $300 in it, was missing.

Mac crook

A crook pilfered a woman’s apartment on Second Place on Jan. 12.

When she returned later that day at 6:45 pm, her front door was ajar and her $1,500 Apple MacBook missing.

Jacket pinched

A punk snagged a man’s jacket at a bar on Smith Street on Jan. 12.

The victim said he left his $350 jacket on a bar stool at the nightclub between Warren and Baltic streets 3:45 pm.

When he returned a few minutes later, his jacket was gone, along with a $500 camera he’d left in the pocket.
