Ghost gun

A perp stripped a teen of his iPhone after pretending to pull a gun on him on 65th Street on July 13.

The victim told cops that the phone robber approached him at the corner of 11th Avenue around 2 pm and said that someone had taken his sister’s phone.

“I’m gonna get the phone back — either your way, or my way,” the perp said. “I already pulled a gun on someone else.”

The perp then simulated a firearm through the front of his pants, the victim told cops — though no gun was produced.

The victim handed over the phone, and the crafty robber took off.

What a tool!

Someone ripped off a man’s tools after disabling a security camera at his 85th Street house on July 15.

The victim told cops security footage showed a man entering his backyard between Third Avenue and Ridge Boulevard from the neighbor’s yard at 9 pm.

The sneak removed one of the cameras, but was not shown in the footage removing the $2,650 worth of power tools.

Lock your doors

Robbers swiped $400 and a Smartphone when a man left his car unlocked on 65th Street on July 15.

The victim told cops he parked his Nissan Versa near 11th Avenue around 10:30 pm.

When he returned the next morning, his wallet and Blackberry were missing.
