Greenpoint–Northside

Drinking up profits

A man who worked for a Bridgewater Street wholesale shipper was arrested for allegedly pouring several liters of expensive vodka into his own bottles and then sending off the empties from Sept. 27 through Oct. 25.

The manager of the shipper between Apollo Street and Meeker Avenue told police that he witnessed the man take several liters of vodka off the pallets, dump the spirit into his own bottles, and put the empties back on the pallets before shipping them off.

The district attorney’s office charged him with five counts of petit larceny and five counts of criminal possession of stolen property.

Hairy situation

Police arrested a man who they say stole four shavers from a Manhattan Avenue drug store on Oct. 25.

According to the district attorney’s office, the man walked into the drug store between Meserole and Calyer streets at 6 pm and put three Norelco shavers and one Braun shaver into his backpack, then tried to walk out of the store without paying for them.

The district attorney’s office charged him with petit larceny and criminal possession of stolen property.

Ring, ring

A man was arrested after he allegedly stole a ring from his friend’s Kent Avenue house on Oct. 22 and then sold it to a pawn shop.

According to the district attorney’s office, the woman who lived at the apartment between N. Fourth and N. Fifth streets noticed that her ring was missing that day at 12:05 pm and asked the man who had been staying at her house if he took it — and he admitted that he did.

The ring had an alleged value of $3,000.

The district attorney charged the man with criminal larceny, criminal possession of stolen property, grand larceny and petit larceny.
