A burglar stole a man’s rare coin collection while the Henry Street resident was on a trip from April 23–30.
The numismatist returned to his home between Degraw and Kane streets to find that his drawers had been rifled and that his stockpile of silver dollars, “Kennedy” coins and assorted “old dimes” had been taken.
A thief almost stole a man’s bicycle on Court Street on April 29, but bumbled the getaway and landed instead in jail.
The victim, 23, saw the culprit absconding with his bike at 12:30 pm between Baltic and Warren streets, and briefly struggled with the hoodlum, who succeeded in pedaling away.
But moments later, the thief, 45, abandoned the bike and ran on foot, only to be apprehended by pursuing officers.
