Car rescue

A thief thought he could take advantage of a rental car company, but wound up in cuffs after an attempt to swipe some wheels on Nov. 7.

A Budget Rent A Car employee told cops that one of the company’s 2009 Chevy Malibus had been stolen from the lot on Third Avenue between Sackett and Degraw streets at around 10 am. A witness added that he saw a man in a gray hoodie and jeans take off with the vehicle.

Cops surveyed the area and found a man fitting that description — who then confessed to the crime!

Auto gone

A car thief heisted a U-Haul van on Forth Avenue on Nov. 6.

The van’s renter told police that he had left the vehicle between Second and Third streets at 8:40 am, but it was gone two hours later.

Spicy burg

Someone broke into a popular hot wing joint on Ninth Street and stole $6,800 early on Nov. 8.

The owner of the Atomic Wings outlet between Fifth and Sixth avenues told police that he closed up after midnight, but when he returned the next day, he discovered that a crook had broken into the restaurant and grabbed the cash.

Slope burg

At least three apartments were broken into last week. Here are the details:

•A burglar sneaked in through an open back window of an apartment on 15th Street between Fourth and Fifth avenues between Oct. 31 and Nov. 6, and took a desktop computer.

• A perp stole a pearl necklace and a laptop from an apartment on Degraw Street between Fourth and Fifth avenues on Nov. 2. The resident told cops that she had stepped outside for just 10 minutes at around 5:30 pm.

• A thief in need of new garb forced open the back window of an apartment on 12th Street between Fourth and Fifth avenues at around 3 pm on Nov. 4. He got away with a pair of jeans, sneakers and a baseball cap.
