A merciless burglar stole everything — from pets to a toaster, even! — from a Garnet Street apartment overnight on May 31.
The victim, 28, said she was away from 7 pm until 10:35 pm the following night and she did not know how the intruder got into her home, between Court and Smith streets.
But when she entered, she saw the thief took almost everything she owned — including her three cats, two parakeets, her Social Security card, an assortment of tools, a Nintendo video game system, her coffee machine, six plates, a set of bedroom sheets, her movie collection, a can opener and the toaster.

The victim, 38, told police that the enraged driver, 47, then hit him in the arm with the unknown weapon. No meatballs were involved.
