Family feud

Cops cuffed a man who they say pushed his sister out of her minivan on Haring Street on June 18 just after she dropped off her kids — and drove off in the stolen car.

The victim told police she was seeing her children off near Emmons Avenue when her brother and cousin shoved her out of the vehicle. They then jumped in and sped off, but wrecked the van just a few blocks away on Avenue Z and Coyle Street, cops said.

They fled the scene, but police caught up with the brother and arrested him, according to the police report.

Dirty laundry

Three men stole $263 worth of Tide laundry detergent products from a pharmacy on Avenue X on June 14, state police.

An employee of the drug store near West Street told cops the soapy swindlers elbowed him on their way out with the ill-gotten goods at 6:20 pm, causing him pain and swelling in his right eye.

One-way currency exchange

A bandit broke into a locked apartment at Shore Parkway on June 18, ransacked the place, and helped himself to $1,000 worth of Euro and Japanese Yen bills, said cops.

Police say the crook also came away with a $300 necklace from the abode near E. 13th Street. He may have entered through a window, but neither the window or the door were visibly damaged, authorities state.

Easy as apple iPad

An opportunistic intruder made his way into a Coney Island Avenue home on June 19 through an unlocked door, state authorities.

The bandit walked out of the home near Avenue S with two iPads, two laptop computers, a Tiffany necklace, and a gold Michael Kors watch, officials reported.
