Thieving stroll

Someone snatched a woman’s wallet from a stroller while she browed a Fifth Avenue pharmacy on June 23.

The woman told cops that she was grabbing an item from the shelf at a drug store near Ninth Street at 4:45 pm when a man in a white shirt swooped in and grabbed her wallet from her child’s stroller.

Contents of the wallet included a wad of cash, several credit cards, and a diver’s license. Cops say the act was caught on camera but the sneak has not been identified and no arrests have been made.

Grand theft uh-oh

A thief nabbed a Honda from Atlantic Avenue on June 25 and vanished without a trace.

The car owner told cops she was visiting her grandmother when she left her white Honda Pilot parked near Carlton Avenue. She returned around 1 pm to find the car missing, with no broken glass at the scene. The thieves also made off with her iPad, which she had left in the car.

Ping-Pong prowler

A troublemaker took a wallet from a Ping-Pong player at a Flatbush Avenue bar on June 21.

The victim says she was playing the tabletop game at the bar near Prospect Place at 11:30 pm when she noticed that someone had swiped her wallet, cash, credit card, and cellphone. The credit card was later used at a gas station, cops say.
