Phone on roam

A thief took a teacher’s cellphone at a school on St. Marks Avenue on Feb. 17.

The teacher told cops that she left her bag on a chair at the school between Grand and Classon avenues at 3 pm, returning one hour later to find her expensive Blackberry gone. Cops said the school has a surveillance video of two 11- to 12-year-olds rifling through her bag, but no arrests have been made.

Beats me

A crook stole a teenager’s headphones on Bergen Street on Feb. 14.

The young victim told cops that he was in the park near Carlton Avenue around 4:45 pm when he stepped away from his bag. When he returned to it 10 minutes later someone had dumped its contents on the ground and plucked his fancy “Dr. Dre” headphones out.


Crooks stole thousands of dollars worth of electronics from a man’s home on Sterling Place between Feb. 14 and 19.

The owner of the home between Washington and Classon avenues told cops that $4,950 worth of electronics disappeared from his house.
