68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Squeaky clean

A burglar busted into an 11th Avenue shop on Sept. 27 and ripped off the register and automatic teller machine — then doused both in bleach, police report.

The store owner said he closed his business near the corner of 65th Street at 9 pm and returned the next day at 9 am. When he got there, he found the till and money dispenser emptied out — and both reeking of chlorine.

Cutting-edge crime

A crook invaded an 11th Avenue bodega and stole $1,000 from inside sometime overnight on Sept. 24, according to cops.

The victim told police he shut his shop between 63rd and 64th streets at 8:30 pm and pulled the front security gate down. When he came back at 7:30 am the next day, he discovered the bars on the safety shutter cut, the glass door smashed — and money missing from the register inside.


Three thugs holding their hands over their faces jumped a woman on 63rd Street on Sept. 24, police state.

The victim reported she was walking between Eighth and Ninth avenues at 12:30 am when a silver minivan pulled up alongside her. The trio of fiends jumped out, hiding their identities behind their palms.

The threesome threw the woman to the ground, and took her iPhone and $1,000 in cash. The crooks dropped the money a few feet away, but held onto the phone.


A lowlife jacked the tires and rims from a car parked on 88th Street on Sept. 25, cops say.

The victim said he parked his vehicle between Colonial Road and Ridge Boulevard at 11 pm. When he came back the following day at 8:45 am, he found his passenger-side window smashed — and his rubber treads and flashy hubcap covers gone.

Nightmare on 64th Street

Thieves looted two apartments in a 64th Street building on Sept. 25, authorities allege.

One victim said she left her home between 10th and 11th avenues at 11:20 am to go to lunch. At 1:36 pm, she got a phone call from her alarm system provider — but disregarded it because she did not recognize the number. When she got back at 3 pm, she found the door to her pad open, her dresser drawers in disarray — and three jewelry boxes containing two pairs of earrings, a bracelet, and four necklaces missing.

The other victim said he took off for work at 6:30 am, and got a call from his neighbor about the raid in the building. When he got home at 5:55 pm, he found the door to his home pried open, and his living room ransacked — with his laptop, bracelet, necklace, and watch all stolen. — Will Bredderman
