Big burglary

Two ruthless crooks stole thousands of dollars in cash and jewelry from a woman’s home on E. 29th Street on Feb. 7, cops say.

Police say the two crooks broke into the home near Voorhies Avenue at 8:50 pm. The victim came home during the robbery and when she heard voices on the second floor, she called her son, according to a police report.

Cops say the burglars stole $2,600, 29 pieces of jewelry, and a watch.

The victim said the men fled on foot down E. 28th Street.

Bad timing

A sneak stole a woman’s watches and personal documents from her home on E. 11th Street on Feb. 6.

Cops say the burglar busted into the home near Avenue Z at 10:30 pm. The crook entered through the woman’s bedroom window and stole her Social Security card, passport, and watches.

Airing dirty laundry

Two good-for-nothings stole a cash machine from a laundry station in an apartment on E. 13th Street on Feb. 3, according to authorities.

Officers say crooks stole the machine from a building near Gravesend Neck Road at 11 pm.

The thieves entered the laundry room through a rear entrance and dashed off with the machine, according to a report.

Speedy sneak

An opportunistic thief stole a woman’s car — with her keys still inside while she unloaded items — from her home on E. 29th Street on Feb. 3, according to a report.

Cops say the car crook snatched the vehicle, which had the car keys in the ignition, near Quentin Road at 12:18 pm.

Police say the thief jumped into the car while the victim was unloading items from the vehicle into her home.

Van villain

Police say a crafty crook stole a van from Quentin Road on Feb. 3.

Authorities say the good-for-nothing sped off in the vehicle, which was parked between E. Fourth and Fifth streets, sometime before 9 am.

Officers say there was no sign of broken glass or drag marks at the scene of the crime.
