Thieves get thrifty

A pair of thieves stole nearly $2,000 in accessories from a Fulton Street T.J. Maxx on April 6.

Police said the two jerks entered the shop near Hoyt Street at about 11:30 am and, within ten minutes, had filled a black garbage bag with goods, then headed for the exit.

Bandit steals home goods

A thief stole a selection of home goods from an Albee Square superstore on April 4.

Sometime between 5 and 8 pm, the filcher loaded up on a Ninja-brand blender, a television, and clothing at the Target near Fulton Street and ran out through the fire exit without handing over even a dime, police said. The store’s security cameras caught every detail of the theft.

Lobby looters nab radios

Two raiders stole a set of pricey walkie-talkies from a Smith Street apartment building on April 1.

Police said the pair of purloiners followed a deliveryman through the front door of a building near Atlantic Avenue shortly before 9 pm and took the first things they saw — two walkie-talkies sitting on the desk in the lobby, each worth a hefty $400.

Forceful goon takes broadcast equipment

A surprisingly strong goon broke into a Bridge Street production studio on April 8 and made off with an expensive camera.

The victim said the cretin managed to break into the studio near Water Street at about 6 pm by busting through the wall of an adjacent business. Once inside, the jerk grabbed a $5,000 broadcasting camera and fled out to the street.

Ne’er-do-well navigates away

A ne’er-do-well found a new way to traverse the city streets when they stole a parked Lincoln Navigator on April 9.

Police said the victim parked the car on York Street near Bridge Street early on April 5 and left it sitting there until the evening of April 9, when he discovered that someone had beat him to the punch and driven the vehicle away. Cops searched the area and nearby businesses, including the Brooklyn Navy Yard, searched their parking lots, but the car was nowhere to be found.

Worm seeks new wardrobe

Some worm went in search of an illegal new wardrobe in the Fulton Street Macy’s on April 7.

Employees told police the knave entered at about 4:30 pm and allegedly spent a half hour perusing the department store and stashing away hats, jerseys, jeans and designer shorts — but the staff was too quick, and cops met the would-be bandit at the door, found his bags full of unpaid goodies, and arrested him on the spot.
