A would-be burglar was thwarted when a manager came upon him inside a N. Ninth Street record store on the morning of Feb. 5, cops said.

The manager of the store between Kent and Wythe avenues said that he arrived at 9 am and found a stranger inside, peering at items of merchandise. The intruder ran out before the manager could call police, according to a report.

The worker later found that the prowler had broken in through the side door.


Someone broke into a woman’s Eagle Street apartment on Feb. 6 and stole her stuff, officers said.

The victim said she was away from her pad between Franklin and Manhattan Avenue from 8:30 am until 2:30 pm.

When she arrived back, her front door was open and the crook or crooks had stolen her electronic tablet, jewelry, watch, and a wad of cash.


A sneak snatched a woman’s wallet off of a Greenpoint Avenue gas station counter on Feb. 7, according to the authorities.

The victim said that she arrived the gas station between Jewel and Moultrie streets at 1:55 pm, and when she went to pump the gas, she left her billfold at the counter. When she went back in a few minutes later she found her wallet missing, law enforcement officials said.
