Perhaps desperate to find Christmas gifts for their sweethearts, criminals snatched designer perfumes in a pair of robberies.
• A crook walked off with Bulgari, Armani and Ferragamo perfumes — and a pile of other loot — from a Fourth Avenue apartment on Dec. 20. The thief entered through the front door of the unit, which is at the corner of 73rd Street, between 1:30 and 7:30 pm, and stole a laptop case, a Zara jacket and $390, along with the designer scents.
• A brazen thug crashed through the front door of a Fort Hamilton Parkway hair salon and grabbed the shop’s stock of eau de toilette — 20 French bottles valued at $2,500. The crook smashed the glass door of the beauty parlor, which is near the corner of Bay Ridge Avenue, sometime between 7 pm on Dec. 16 and 10 the next morning, and also stole 18 watches and $250.
Thieves only took parts from a woman’s flashy convertible on 90th Street — but the owner is going to have a tough time driving after the robbery.
The spiffy silver Honda’s canvas roof was cut sometime between 11 pm on Dec. 17 and 9 pm on Dec. 18 near the Dyker Beach Golf Course. The crooks stole the convertible’s steering wheel, seats, shifter and gauges.
