76th Precinct

Carroll Gardens-Cobble Hill–Red Hook

New Year’s bust

A goon broke into a 2009 Volkswagen Passat parked on Smith Street on Dec. 31, taking a navigation system and an iPod.

The victim left his vehicle near Huntington Street at 9 pm. When he returned to it at 6:20 am the next day, only to find that someone had smashed the window and looted the cabin.

Brick babe

A 17-year-old flexed her muscles on Jan. 1 when she hurled a brick through a gas station door on Hamilton Avenue.

Station employees near Huntington Street wouldn’t let the woman in at 5:50 am, prompting the violent outburst.

Apartment raid

A thief broke into a Henry Street apartment on Dec. 29, taking an Apple MacBook.

The tenant said that someone pried open the door to his apartment between Baltic and Warren streets sometime after 6 pm. When a housekeeper came to clean at 9 am the next day, she found both the gate and the apartment door wide open.

Three on one

Three goons jumped a 28-year-old on on Court Street on Dec. 30 — taking his wallet.

The victim was nearing Nelson Street at 11:20 pm when the three suspects approached, stuck a hard object in his back, and demanded his property before fleeing in a red car.

Shoplifter nabbed

A man allegedly tried to swipe more than $500 in razors and shaving equipment from a Smith Street CVS on Dec. 21 — but was nabbed before he could get out the door.

Workers at the pharmacy between President and Union streets said they saw the 49-year-old try to leave the store with the goods at 2:35 pm.
