Thief swipes halal cart’s generator from its spot

62nd Precinct

Bensonhurst—Bath Beach

Power move

A thief stole a halal cart owner’s red Honda generator from its Bay Parkway spot on Feb. 14.

The lout made the steal between 65th and 66th streets, just before 11 am, when the owner left the cart to go use a bathroom across the street. A security camera nearby showed the perp taking the generator and putting it into a white Dodge minivan with a New York license plate and then fleeing on Bay Parkway towards 67th Street, according to the report.

Spirited away

A thief stole two bottles of Grey Goose vodka from the basement of a Bay Parkway apartment on Feb. 13 by breaking the door.

The swiper grabbed the loot from the storage room between 86th Street and Benson Avenue at around 5:15 am after taking the elevator down to the basement from inside the building, and then breaking a wooden panel next to the door so he could unlock it from the inside, police said.

Driving off

A punk stole a man’s Mercedes Benz from its spot on Shore Parkway on Feb. 13.

The man’s driver parked the car between Bay 38th Street and 25th Avenue just before 11 am, when he left it unattended with the keys in and the doors unlocked, police reported.

But just a few minutes after the perp drove off, security cameras captured him driving the car on Shore Parkway without a license place, according to officials.

Parked it

A good-for-nothing stole a man’s 2015 Nissan Altima from its Bay Ridge Avenue parking spot sometime between Feb. 14 and Feb. 15.

The man told officers he parked the car between 16th and 17th avenues at around 8:15 pm, but when he returned the following morning, it was gone.

Free ride

A thief stole $550 and a man’s credit and debit cards after breaking open his locker at an 86th Street gym on Feb. 15, police said.

The perp broke the lock and grabbed the goods at the gym between 20th and 21st avenues at around 12:30 pm, according to a police report. The crook then bought more than $100 worth of MetroCards in two separate transactions at 20th Avenue and 86th Street station, cops allege.

Grab bag

A no-goodnik stole a woman’s cellphone out of her purse — while it was on her shoulder — on Kings Highway on Feb. 15.

The woman was walking between W. Second and W. Third streets just after 11 am when the swiper made the steal before fleeing on foot, authorities said.

Arm candy

A good-for-nothing ransacked a woman’s 65th Street bedroom on Feb. 16, when he climbed in through the window and stole a Gucci handbag and Louis Vuitton wallet.

The woman told police she returned to her home between 16th and 17th avenues at around 5 pm, when she found the window and back door open, the room ransacked, and the designer goods gone.
