A bozo broke into Kickstarter’s Greenpoint headquarters last week and made off with a bundle of electronics, according to cops.

The sneak crept into the online-fund-raising company’s former pencil factory home on Kent Street at 8:20 pm on Sept. 24 by following a delivery worker through the door, NYPD officials said. The guy then waited for employees to leave the area near the front entrance and strolled through offices where he bagged three Apple laptops and an iPhone 5s, officers stated.

The internet-success-story manufacturer moved into the industrial building between Franklin and West streets in January after a lengthy renovation.

The NYPD asks those with information about the incident to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577–8477, go to, or text-message tips to 274637 and enter “TIP577.”
