Fanny pack foul

A greedy goon stole a woman’s fanny pack from a park bench in Prospect Park on June 13.

Cops say the woman was lounging on the grass, and left her pack unattended on a bench, only to find it missing when she returned around 3:45 pm.

The victim says her identification, two credit cards, and $40 in cash were inside the bag, but no unauthorized charges were made to the card before they were cancelled.

Subway swiper

A mystery subway thief snatched a sleeping man’s bag on a 2 train near the Atlantic Avenue stop on June 10.

The victim, who says he is homeless and rides the train back and forth to help him think, got on the train at 11 pm on June 9 and fell asleep with his tote bag on the seat next to him.

He woke up at 5 am at the station near Pacific Street and saw that his bag was missing. The bag contained the man’s debit card, identification, Social Security card, MetroCard and two pairs of shoes, according to a police report.

Chain gang

One or more bandits stole several bikes and equipment from the front porch of a Second Street home by cutting their chains on June 7.

The victim says he returned to his home near Sixth Avenue to find that his two bikes, a Kona Dew and a James Dammuter, had been freed from the chains binding them to the front porch, and the rapscallion had taken the Kryptonite locks and a kid’s seat as well.

When are you gonna realize your still in BROOKLYN? The long timers dont even want you here in the 1st place because its bad enough you're the reason their rent is rising. Anyway, shout out to the thieves around prospect park. Lets run these yups outta here.
