Ridge rim theft

There were two separate incidents of wheels and rims stripped from vehicles in Bay Ridge this week. Here’s the rundown:

• A good-for-nothing stole two tire and rim sets from a car on Ridge Boulevard sometime overnight on Feb. 29, according to police.

The victim parked her car near 93rd Street around 10:45 pm and came back the next day around 9:30 am to find her car stripped, police said.

• A few days later on March 3, a raider broke into a car parked on Mackay Place and stole two tire and rim sets sometime overnight on March 3, authorities said.

The victim returned to her vehicle parked near Shore Road around 8 am on March 4 to find her window was shattered — although the thief did not steal anything — and the parts were missing.

Safe break

An intruder ransacked a home on 71st Street on March 5 and broke into a safe to get to a large trove of jewelry and cash, police said.

The victim was only gone from her home between 10th and 11th avenues from 7:15 to 9 pm, according to a police report. She walked in to find her bedroom door open and the room a complete mess.

Then she saw someone had broken into a safe and stole her jewelry and $80,000 in cash. Police later found her bathroom window open.

A lot for nothing

A cat burglar went through a lot of trouble for no gain when he broke into a beauty supply store on 86th Street on Feb. 28, according to a police report.

The owner closed the store between Fourth and Fifth avenues at 10:30 am. Upon returning at 6:30 pm, the owner discovered a large hole in a sheetrock wall leading to an unoccupied apartment, where the trespasser had pried open a rooftop door to get in.

The burglar did not get away with anything, but did around $250 worth of damage, according to a police report.
