An eagle-eyed go-kart rider fingered a guy who allegedly looted a locker at Luna Park on May 10, but the cretin behind two other cubby-related cribbings that day appears to be still at large.

A woman stashed her bag in a locker near the Coney Island Raceway before going for a spin on the go-karts, a police report states. When the ride was wrapping up, the girl’s beau spotted a guy allegedly leaving Luna Park with his paramour’s purse, police said. The lovers rushed to the Stillwell Avenue subway station and alerted a police officer, who put out a radio call for the bag-jacker, police said. A cop ran into the rake on a Q Train and Brighton Beach Avenue at 9:40 pm and cuffed the alleged larcenist, officials said. But police never recovered a phone that was in the bag when it was taken, a police report states.

The alleged theft was the third in the park that day, according to police reports. Officials are unsure if the guy they arrested perpetrated the previous pilferings, and they’re only charging him with one crime, a department spokeswoman said.

The other two thefts happened as follows:

• A fiend pinched a purse containing $60 and credit cards from an unlocked cubby near the park’s Screamin’ Eagle ride at 3 pm.

• Then someone swiped a bag containing $115, credit cards, and a social security card from a locker near the Windstar at 6 pm.

Luna Park did not return requests for a comment.
