Thief uses woman’s credit cards to book hotel room

94th Precinct

Greenpoint–Northside

Hey big spender

A crook lifted a woman’s wallet from her purse at a bar on Wythe Avenue on April 13, then used the cash to book himself a hotel room.

The woman told police she was at the tavern near between N. 10th and N. 11th streets around midnight, and when she was on her way home in a cab, she realized her wallet was gone.

The bad guy used one of her credit cards to pay for a room at a hotel in Midtown, according to cops.

Motorcycle heist

Someone rode off on a man’s motorbike parked on N. Sixth Street on April 14.

The owner told cops he left his crotch rocket near between Kent Avenue and the waterfront at 1 am, but when he returned the next morning, his bike was gone. Police drove around to try to find the bike, but to no avail, according to a report.

Robbery redemption

A burglar broke into a Graham Avenue eatery’s automated teller machine on April 14 — and it may have been a disgruntled ex-employee.

The owner told police he walked into his restaurant between Conselyea Street and Metropolitan Avenue at 1 am to find the cash dispenser was taken apart. There were no signs of forced entry, or of tools used on the machine, police reported.

No arrests have been made, but the owner told police he had a sneaking suspicion that it was one of two guys he fired 12 days ago, according to a report.

No tip

A scoundrel swiped cash from a delivery guy’s wallet while he was making a drop-off on Norman Avenue on April 13.

The victim told cops he was making a delivery near Guernsey Street at 9:30 pm. He left his keys in the ignition of the idling car, and returned to find about $700 was gone from his wallet in the center console, police reported.

Subway snatcher

A sneaky straphanger nabbed a man’s wallet during a train ride to Brooklyn from that other borough on April 14.

The victim said he got on the crowded Canarsie-bound caboose at Union Square at 9 pm. Another rider kept bumping into him along the way, and when he got off at the Graham Avenue stop, he realized his wallet was missing, police said.
