Respect her gadgets

Cops cuffed a man who they say stole a bundle of gadgets from a woman’s apartment on Sackett Street on March 7.

The 26-year-old victim left her apartment between Hoyt and Bond streets to go to the store around 2:55 pm and, when she returned 15 minutes later, she noticed that her Samsung cellphone, MacBook computer, and iPod were stolen, according to a police report.

Police arrested a 52-year-old man at 5:45 pm and charged him with burglary and criminal possession of stolen property.

Clean streets

A crook was arrested for stealing laundry detergent and shampoo from a convenience store on Court Street on March 1, police said.

The 40-year-old shoplifted four bottles of Tide and two bottles of hair cleaner from the store between First and Second places and tried to leave around 4:57 pm, but a store worker called the cops and officers cuffed him, a report states.


A thief swiped hundreds in cash from a woman’s parked car on Sackett Street sometime between March 8 and March 9, cops said.

The 74-year-old victim said she parked her black Cadillac between Hoyt and Bond streets around 6 pm on March 8 and returned at 1:30 pm on March 9 to find her door wide open.

Some $350 was missing from the vehicle, along with her credit card, debit card, and health insurance card, according to a report.

Seven years bad luck

A vandal broke the mirror of a woman’s parked car on Coffey Street sometime between March 8 and March 9, cops said.

The 65-year-old motorist parked her Nissan at 9 am between Ferris and Conover streets and when she came back at 8 am the next day, her mirror was smashed, according to police.

Long night

A crook snatched a sleeping man’s iPhone on the subway on March 10, police said.

The 24-year-old man dozed off while riding a Manhattan-bound F train around 5 am and, when he awoke, he realized he no longer had his Samsung cellphone or his MetroCard, according to cops.

The unlucky soul checked the floor and the train before exiting at the Smith Street–Ninth Street subway station, a report says.
