77th Precinct

Prospect Heights

Greedy gamer

A thief snatched some fancy videogame gear from a Park Place apartment on April 9.

The 27-year-old victim told cops that he was sleeping inside his bedroom near Washington Avenue at around 11:30 pm when someone sneaked through his unlocked front door, and took a PlayStation 3, laptop and white backpack.

His neighbors said they saw nothing.

Expensive snatch

A thief swiped a woman’s fancy jewelry on St. Marks Avenue on April 8.

The 41-year-old victim told cops that she left her apartment near Flatbush Avenue at 9:30 am and returned at 10:45 pm to discover that her back window was open and thousands in diamond earrings and necklaces were gone.

Unlucky Lexus

A quick-moving jerk swiped some cash from a senior citizen on Bergen Street on April 9.

The 65-year-old victim told cops she parked and locked her 2007 Lexus near Carlton Avenue at around 3:50 pm. But when she returned about an hour later, she discovered that her front passenger-side window had been shattered and that her $100 cellphone, along with $90, were gone.

Tax break

A jerk snatched some checks from a car parked on Eastern Parkway on April 10.

The 43-year-old victim told cops he parked his 2008 gray Toyota near Classon Avenue at 3:30 pm, then went to the Brooklyn Museum. The driver came back two hours later and discovered that someone had smashed his passenger-side window, then swiped a checkbook and some tax forms.

Vintage snatch

A thief swiped a cellphone inside a clothing shop on Vanderbilt Avenue on April 3.

The 24-year-old victim told cops she set her iPhone on a counter inside One of a Find Vintage near St. Marks Avenue at 1:30 pm, then took a five-minute stroll through the store. That was enough time for the jerk to snatch her phone.
