Thief’s dream

A goon stole a straphanger’s phone after she fell asleep on a 95th Street-bound R train on Feb. 28, cops said.

The victim left her iPhone 6 on her lap as she conked out between 7:30 pm and 8 pm, and when she awoke, the cellphone was gone, according to the NYPD.

Fence hopper

A burglar stole $400 from a 65th Street business on March 4, police said.

The prowler climbed a rear fence and pried open a security gate to the building between Ninth and 10th avenues in Borough Park between 1 pm and 2 pm, according to a report. The thief left a tool behind, the report states.

Window pain

A cat burglar climbed through a kitchen window and took cash and jewelry from a 99th Street home on March 4, according to the authorities.

The intruder crept into the house between Ridge Boulevard and Fourth Avenue in Bay Ridge sometime between 12:20 pm and 1:50 pm, removing $2,000 in cash and an estimated $5,000 in jewelry, officials said.
