No salvation

A pickpocket swiped a phone and wallet from a shopper at the Third Avenue Salvation Army on Sept. 5.

The victim told cops that she set down her purse while perusing the store between 68th Street and Bay Ridge Avenue at around noon. When she checked her purse five minutes later, her cellphone and Disney wallet were missing.

Ruby Friday

A jewel thief made off like a bandit after busting into a 91st Street apartment.

The victim told cops that he left his pad between Third Avenue and Ridge Boulevard at 7 am on Sept. 2. When he returned around 8 pm the following night, he found the padlock to his room busted and a $6,000 gold necklace with rubies missing.

Wheelie gone

Rim thieves stripped a car of its tires while its owner stepped inside a 62nd Street club on Sept. 7.

The victim told cops that he parked outside V Lounge between Eighth and Ninth avenues at 4:15 am. When he returned — a mere five minutes later – his car was wheel-less.

Debit head

A thief stole a credit card after smashing the window of a car parked on 82nd Street overnight on Sept. 4.

The victim told cops that he parked near Fourth Avenue at 8 pm and returned at 11:15 the next morning to find his side window busted and his bank card missing.
