Crooks broke into the McKibbin Street loft building — fondly known as the McKibbin Dorms — and heisted two laptops on May 30.

The thieves grabbed the MacBook and another laptop from the common area of the apartment between 11 pm and 11:45 pm, and fled from the residence, which is between Bushwick Avenue and Seigel Street.

Penn St perps

Thieves ransacked a Penn Street apartment building, breaking into at least two apartments between May 28 and May 31.

The burglars forced their way into one apartment in the building — breaking the knob off of the front door in the process.

Once inside the residence, which is between Wythe and Bedford avenues, the crooks grabbed $200 and fled.

During the same three-day period, thieves also pushed open a backdoor of another apartment in the building and grabbed $100.

Not so Civic

Car thieves heisted a black Honda Civic overnight on May 30.

The crooks jacked the 1999 sedan — a popular target for car thieves, despite its age — from its spot at the corner of Lorimer and Boerum streets between 10 pm and 8 am.
