94th Precinct



A conniving climber came through a woman’s Eagle Street apartment window and made off with a wad of cash and jewelry on Oct. 21.

The woman told cops she was taking out the trash from her home near McGuinness Boulevard between 11 and 11:30 am when the thief snuck through her front window and rifled through her dresser drawers. The perp made off with a grand in cash and some jewelry, police said.

The victim said she saw the sneak walking up the basement stairs to exit the building through the front door, according to a police report.

Generator grab

A greedy goon pillaged a Richardson Street construction site sometime overnight on Oct. 21 and stole two pricey generators from a remodeling company.

The company told cops the site was vacant after 4:45 pm on Oct. 21 and when workers returned around 7:30 am the next day, the chain and lock on the front door were damaged and two generators were gone. The perp fled through the front entrance, cops said.

Moto haul

A couple of crooks swiped a motorcycle off N. Eighth Street in the early morning hours of Oct. 22.

The victim told cops he left his Ducati motorcycle parked between Driggs Avenue and Roebling Street before going into his apartment, but as he was leaving for the gym at 4:45 am he noticed the bike was gone.

Security footage shows two perps in dark clothes pull up in a dark minivan, open the trunk, and load the motorcycle into the van before speeding down N. Eighth Street toward Driggs Avenue, cops said.
