76th Precinct

Carroll Gardens-Cobble Hill–Red Hook


A quartet of rapscallions stole food from a delivery guy on Summit Street on Nov. 20 — and threatened him with a gun when he gave chase, according to police.

The victim was waiting for his customer on the sidewalk near Henry Street at 8:30 pm when four men ran up, grabbed the goods he was delivering off his bike, and fled up Summit Street towards Smith Street.

The delivery dude gave chase, but he knew it was time to call it quits when he found himself staring down the barrel of a gun, and the thieves got away with the booty.

Produce aisle pickpocket

A pickpocket stole a woman’s wallet while she was shopping at supermarket on Court Street on Nov. 21.

The woman started her shopping trip at the grocer at Atlantic Avenue at 2 pm and told police she never put down her purse, but she found her wallet was missing when it came time to pay for her groceries.

Later she found out that the thief had charged $400 on the card at a department store, but police have not brought the thief in yet.

Jacket jackers

Two cold crooks stole a couple of jackets from a high-end fashion store on Smith Street on Nov. 20.

They walked into the store at Butler Street just before 5:30 pm, but instead of holding the place up, they just grabbed the jackets and ran out in a flash, according to a police report. They fled up Smith Street towards Baltic Street.
