Need insurance?

A perp stole $1,000 worth of electronics out of a Metlife insurance company car parked on Fifth Avenue on Oct. 14.

He’s probably insured.

Half an hour later, the locker was empty.

Transit trick

A sneaky creep stole an iPhone right out of the hands of a straphanger at the Union Street stop of the R train on Oct. 9.

Garage opener

Some jerks broke into a Sixth Avenue garage and gershed nearly $5,000 worth of bikes and equipment on Oct. 14.

Bejeweled bandit

A bling-hungry burglar stole $4,300 worth of jewelry out of a Seventh Street apartment on Oct. 15.

Side swipe

A thief stole the side mirrors off of a Mercedes Benz on Eighth Street overnight on Oct. 14.

The victim told police that he parked his car between Seventh and Eighth avenues late, but returned at 7 am the next morning to find severed wires dangling from where his mirrors used to be.
