Bad roommate

A jerk jacked two bikes from an apartment on Eastern Parkway over Memorial Day weekend.

The 32-year-old victim told cops that he left his apartment at around 6 pm on May 27, and came back three days later to find that someone had swiped his Banshee bicycle and a cruiser totaling $2,000.

The doorman told the poor guy he saw a former roommate wheeling the bikes through the building.

Say cheese

Dapper thug
