Engine diving

Somebody stole components from the engine of a woman’s car on Fifth Avenue on Oct. 11.

The victim told police she parked her car near Baltic Street at 7:30 pm, and, upon returning two days later, found that the engine sounded funky.

She took the car to the shop, where mechanics told the woman her motor was short one converter arch and an oxygen sensor, cops said.

No arrests have been made in the case, which has been closed, cops said.

Watch out

A thief looted a package containing a smartwatch left on the stoop of a woman’s 10th Street home on Oct. 8.

The victim told police she returned to her home between Sixth and Seventh avenues expecting her pricey Garmin smartwatch at 2 pm, only to find the packaging it came in ripped open and stuffed in a nearby garbage pan, and her wrist computer stolen.

No arrests have been made in the case, which has been closed, cops said.

Bike bandit

A thief rode off with a woman’s bike she parked on Third Street on Oct. 10.

The victim told police she locked her bike up in front of a grocery store between Third Avenue and Bond Street at 7 am, and returned nearly 10 hours later to find her pedal-powered Fuji stolen.

No arrests have been made in the case, which has been closed, according to police.

Shopping spree

Cops busted a man for allegedly stealing T-shirts and sweatpants from a Flatbush Avenue clothing store on Oct. 13.

A worker told police the suspect grabbed 27 shirts and one pair of pants from the store near Atlantic Avenue at 5:50 pm, before attempting to slink past the register with his ill-gotten attire.

Police arrested the suspect that day, and allegedly recovered a crack pipe off him following a search, cops said.
