Tag team

A pair of punks held up an 11th Avenue deli on March 8, police said.

The clerk reported that the first fiend entered the bodega at the corner of 62nd Street at 1 am and headed for the coolers in the back. Thirty seconds later, the second scoundrel burst through the door in a ski mask and put a silver handgun to the cashier’s head.

The perp who had come in earlier ran up and pushed the worker to the floor while the gun-toting-goon emptied the till of $300 in cash. The two fled in the direction of 12th Avenue.

Aw, snap

A lowlife swiped a pricey camera from a Sixth Avenue apartment on March 7, police report.

The victim told cops he left his pad between 69th and 70th streets at 1 pm and returned at 7:15 pm to see his door forced open and his picture-taker stolen.


A brute smashed his way into an 11th Avenue home and stole thousands of dollars in jewelry — plus an iPod Touch — from inside on March 5, according to cops.

The victim reported that she left her home between 78th and 79th streets at 1:30 pm and returned an hour and a half later to find her back door kicked clean off and her platinum engagement ring, diamond-studded platinum wedding band, pink sapphire ring, and MP3 player gone.

Night watchman

A burglar ransacked an 86th Street jewelry store of 90 high-end timepieces on March 7, cops claim.

Security cameras show the crook entering through the security gates of the shop between Fourth and Fifth avenues at 7:55 pm and cleaning out the display cases.

In the cards

A villain shattered the driver’s-side window of a car on 62nd Street and stole the owner’s credit cards and identification overnight on March 8.

The victim said he parked opposite his friend’s house between Eighth and Ninth avenues at 11 pm and came back out at 7 am the next day to find the glass in pieces and his plastic missing.

Ripe for picking

A thief snatched an iPod and iPad from an unlocked vehicle parked on Senator Street on March 2, police say.

The victim said he parked his vehicle near Fifth Avenue at 1 am without locking up, and came back nine hours later to discover his expensive gadgets gone.

Jersey jam

A hotwheeler jacked the tires and rims from a car on 70th Street belonging to a visitor from New Jersey on March 7, cops report.

The victim told police he parked his car between 10th and 11th avenues at 10 pm and slept at a friend’s house. When he came out the next morning at 9 am, he found his treads and flashy add-ons had vanished.
