68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

What a tool

A crook swiped a stash of drills, saws, and plumbing supplies from a 96th Street basement on Oct. 10, police report.

The victim said the super of his building between Third and Marine avenues locked the subterranean floor at 11 am. When the resident went to check on his belongings the next day at 6 am, he discovered seven of his drills, his two skill saws, 15 valves, and a length of pipe, all stolen.

Knock, knock

Two burglars busted into a 68th Street apartment while the tenant was asleep inside on Oct. 11, according to cops.

The victim told police he awoke in his home between Seventh and Eighth avenues at 1:20 pm to the sound of his door crashing open. He came out of his bedroom to discover two young men standing in his foyer.

The dastardly duo scrammed — but not before grabbing $400 in cash and a gold ring.

Stealer’s wheels

A lowlife jacked the wheels from a vehicle parked on 72nd Street overnight on Oct. 9, authorities state.

The victim reported that she left her car between 10th and 11th avenues at 5:30 pm. When she came back the next day at 7 am, she found the car sitting on its axles.

Rim out

A villain lifted the tires and rims from a car left on Shore Road overnight on Oct. 7, police say.

The victim said she parked her vehicle between 68th and 69th streets at 9 pm, and came back at 7 am the next day — to find her treads and flashy hubcap covers gone!

TV eye

A fiend raided a 78th Street pad for a television set and laptop on Oct. 11, cops report.

The victim said she left her home between Ridge Boulevard and Third Avenue at 8:30 am. When she came back, she found the door to her building broken open.

Upstairs, she found her fire escape window ajar and her apartment pillaged — and her flatscreen and computer missing.
