At least two apartments were ransacked and robbed for jewelry on Oct. 21.

• Thieves busted into an Owls Head Court apartment and made off with jewelry.

The victim told cops that she left the house between Bay Ridge Avenue and 68th Street at midnight and came back the next evening at 8 pm to find her front door open and her apartment trashed. Closer inspection revealed that a $1,000 gold chain was missing.

• Thieves made off with a veritable treasure chest of cash, gold and electronics after a busting into an 82nd Street apartment between Fifth and Sixth avenues.

The victim told cops that she left her house at 9:15 am and returned an hour later to find that thieves had pushed in the air conditioner, then ransacked her bedroom and stole $2,000, a computer, and an array of jewelry.

Gold fools

Thieves made off with a cache of jewelry after breaking into a Fort Hamilton Parkway apartment on Oct. 19.

The victim told cops that he left his house between 97th Street and Marine Avenue at 2:30 pm. When he returned at 8:40, $3,100 in gold and stainless steel jewelry was missing.


An 86th Street supermarket was robbed overnight on Oct. 16.

Owners told cops that they left the shop between Fort Hamilton Parkway and Gelston Avenue at 9 pm. When they returned at 4:30 am the next day, the office door had been pried open and $9,000 was taken from the file cabinets.

Not for teacher

A thief swiped a laptop from a room at a Fourth Avenue school on Oct. 15.

The victim told cops that he left his MacBook Pro in his classroom in the school between 75th Street and Bay Ridge Parkway at 10:45 am. When he returned at 1 pm, it was gone.
