Gerritsen break-in

A thief was arrested on July 29 after he tried to break into a home on Gerritsen Avenue — as the owner of the home peered out his window!

Police said that the 23-year-old suspect was caught trying to force open the front door to the home, which is between Whitney and Allen avenues, at 11:30 am.

When the homeowner saw the guy trying to break in, he called police, who caught up with the thief, a Bevy Court resident, at the corner of Channel Avenue and Bevy Court.

Dock dunce

Cops are hoping to get their hooks into the thief who broke into a boat docked near Kingsborough Community College on July 28.

Educators from the New York Harbor School said the thief removed a $400 brass bell from the boat, which was floating off the college pier, sometime after 2 pm.

Bike snip

A free-wheeling thief made off with a $50 mountain bike locked up on Sheepshead Bay Road.

Cops were told that the bike was sitting near East 14th Street at 4 pm on July 29 when it was taken.

King cracker

Ronald McDonald and the Hamburglar could have been suspects in this particular act of vandalism: A 20-year-old, who was later arrested, used a pipe to attack the drive-thru order box at the Burger King on Knapp Street and Avenue Y, on July 30 at 12:30 am.

Wipe out graffiti

As the ongoing war against graffiti continues, cops are now offering a $500 reward to anyone with information that can lead them to vandals who are marking up the community.

The hefty reward is part of the city’s new push to rid New York of graffiti, which is one of the leading quality of life complaints brought to police.

Anyone with information about graffiti vandalism in their neighborhood is urged to contact either 311 or 911.
