Carroll Gardens-Cobble Hill–Red Hook

Divine hammer

A 25-year-old man was arrested after smashing a hammer through the windows of a car parked on Carroll Street on July 7.

The literal-minded Breeders fan shattered the windshield and front windows of the 1997 Dodge Caravan near Hicks Street at 12:32 pm, cops said.

Pot luck

Police arrested a man who they say was a wanted thief on Baltic Street on July 3 — after spotting with a bag of marijuana.

An officer said he was near Smith Street at 11:55 pm when the suspect dropped the bag of pot in front of him. When police searched the 54 year old, they say they found a stolen navigation system on him.

The man had previously been suspected of stealing cash, a navigation system, and headphones from a vehicle earlier this year, cops said.
