Thief steals bride’s rings!

78th Precinct

Park Slope

Sad bride

A jerk stole a woman’s wedding ring at the YMCA on Ninth Street on July 18.

The 29-year-old victim told cops that she locked a $3,500 engagement ring and a $1,000 wedding ring inside a locker in the gym between Fifth and Sixth avenues at 5:45 pm, then went for a workout. She came back an hour later and found the locker open — and both rings missing.

Mystery van

A jerk snatched a cellphone from a woman on Sixth Avenue on July 19.

The 22-year-old victim told cops she was talking on her $400 mobile on the sidewalk near 12th Street at 9:40 pm when a man with a blue baseball cap grabbed it, jumped into a white van and sped away.

Fire escapee

A crook stole a laptop from an apartment on Union Street on July 20.

The victim told cops that a thief climbed up his fire escape and into his home near Fifth Avenue sometime between 11:30 am and 5:30 pm and stole a Mac laptop, some dress shirt cufflinks and a pair of fancy headphones — totaling $4,350.

Van basher

A jerk jacked some electronics from a van parked on Second Avenue on July 20.

The 38-year-old driver told cops he parked and locked his gray 2011 Honda van near 10th Street at 9:45 am, went shopping and came back about 20 minutes later. That was enough time for the thief to bash his rear passenger-side window, and snatch his $100 portable CD player and laptop.

After party

A jerk stole a camera from a car parked on Eighth Street on July 23.

The 21-year-old victim, who lives in Queens, told cops she parked her car in a church parking lot at 8 pm, then went to a party. She came back six hours later and found her Panasonic camera, credit cards and Medicaid cards missing.

Bike bandit

A crook snatched a fancy racing bike from Third Avenue on July 19.

The 30-year-old victim told cops that she parked her $1,600 Pake bicycle near Eighth Street at 2 pm, went to work and came back six hours later. That was enough time for the creep to steal her sweet ride.

No photos

A crook snatched two camera lenses from a car on Flatbush Avenue on July 22.

The 28-year-old victim, who is from Connecticut, told cops he parked his white 2008 GM Yukon in the quiet stretch near the Prospect Park Zoo at 10 am. He came back seven hours later and found his rear passenger-side window smashed — and his $2,000 Nikon lens and $800 Sigma lens gone.

Barroom bandit

A crook snatched an iPad at a Fifth Avenue bar on July 23.

The 28-year-old victim told cops that she set her green Coach bag on a table at High Dive bar near Carroll Street at 3 am, then looked away for a second. That was enough time for the crook to snatch the bag — and the iPad, headphones and $27 inside.

Art attack

A jerk snatched three laptops from an arts center on Carroll Street on July 21.

A 25-year-old worker told cops she locked Textile Arts Center near Third Avenue at 10 pm, then came back at 9:30 am the next day. That’s when she noticed that three MacBooks were gone.

There was no sign of forced entry — and 20 people have keys to the place.
