76th Precinct

Carroll Gardens-Cobble Hill–Red Hook

Gun bust

Police arrested a guy who they said kept a sawed-off shotgun and drugs in his Centre Mall apartment, which they found on June 19.

Officers executed a search warrant of the man’s apartment between Clinton and Henry Streets in Red Hook at 6:50 am, police said.

In chains

A whippersnapper was arrested for whipping a stranger with a bike chain and — then turning his ire on a Smith Street storefront on June 19, police reported.

The 25-year-old man allegedly attacked a 29-year-old stranger between Baltic and Butler streets at 1:35 am and then started smacking a window to a storefront, police said.

These seats taken

A car thief took a Third Street man’s car for a joy ride overnight on June 15 — and stole a row of seats before he dumped the ride.

The vehicle’s owner left his Dodge Caravan parked between Smith and Hoyt streets in Carroll Gardens at 7 pm, but when he looked outside the next day at 11 am, the car was gone, police said.

The victim found his ride parked a couple blocks away on Hoyt Street between First and Second streets, but a row of seats and a moving blanket were missing, officials said.

There were no signs of a force entry into the car, but the ignition switch was severely damaged, a police report states.

Play nice

A stranger punched a lady in the face as she dropped her kid off at a Baltic Street day care on June 18.

The 22-year-old victim told cops she was leaving the preschool between Hoyt and Bond streets in Boerum Hill at 8 am when a woman 10 years her senior socked her in the lobby, police said. Cops have a suspect, but have yet to apprehend her, a police source said.

High-fashion heist

A couture cribber stole three designer purses from an Atlantic Avenue store on June 21.

The goon ran into the store between Clinton and Court streets in Cobble Hill at noon and snatched a Pashli bag valued at $895, a Givenchy purse worth $1,630, and a Balenciaga bag that costs $1,465, officials said.
