Some friends

A woman who invited several guests over for an Easter dinner was in no mood to resurrect her friendships after one of the women stole a credit card and cash.

The 60-year-old hostess told police that she did not see anyone take anything from her Bond Street apartment during the April 4 brunch.

But a month later, she got a bill that revealed that someone had used her VISA card to pay two parking tickets, buy two Metrocards and $50 in baubles from Kay Jewelers.

On May 14, though, Det. Brian Meichsner arrested a suspect, after tracking her through her parking ticket payment, a police source said.


Cops are hunting for the thief who broke into a car in the McDonald’s lot on Hamilton Avenue on May 13.

The victim told police that he parked his Dodge Intrepid at the “restaurant,” which is near Smith Street, at around 7:20 am and headed inside for “breakfast.”

When he returned a half-hour later, a witness told him that she had seen a man dressed entirely in black break into the car and steal a laptop and other goodies before fleeing.

Cold war

Cops nabbed a thief who tried to take $1,000 in over-the-counter cold medicines from the Court Street CVS on May 11.

Police said that the man entered the store, which is between Pacific and Amity streets, at around 2:50 pm and stuffed a bag full of the patent medicines.

An employee saw the crime going down and held the perp until Officer Dynel Powell arrived — and gave the perp a real headache.
