Free massage

A stressed-out crook treated himself to a massage at a Vanderbilt Avenue parlor on Jan. 31 — and didn’t pay the tab.

A witness told cops that the thief received a full body massage at Shanghai Stress Free between Prospect and Park places at 7 pm, before leaving without settling the $85 tab.

Be car-ful

A crafty crook stole a car parked on St. Marks Avenue on Jan. 30.

The victim told cops that he parked his 2005 Mazda sedan between Underhill and Washington avenues at 5 pm on Jan. 30. When he returned the next day at 3 pm, he discovered it was gone.

Soda popped

Two thieves broke into the basement of a bar on Vanderbilt Avenue on Feb. 4, said cops.

The duo allegedly entered Soda Bar, near St. Marks Avenue, at 9:35 pm, and left with $150 and a camera. Police said they arrested two suspects.
