Missing order

A thief snatched a lady’s $640 money order from her coat pocket as she was taking a break at a Grand Avenue bus stop on April 1.

The woman told cops she went at the grocery store with the money order and mail in her front pocket and stopped at the bus stop near Cambridge Street at 1:45 pm to rest.

When she got home, she realized her money order and mail were missing, according to a report. She went to the post office and was told her money order had been cashed, police said.

Bad samaritan

Some punk stole a woman’s purse and keys she left on a bench at a Lafayette Avenue subway stop on March 31.

The victim told police she left her brown Coach purse and keys on the bench of the Flatbush-bound G platform at the station near Fulton Street at 2 pm.

A passerby picked up the bag and intended to return it, according to a transportation authority clerk working at the station, although she still hadn’t seen it by the time she filed the report.

Study break

A sneak lifted a woman’s laptop and wallet she left in a university library on DeKalb Avenue on March 30.

Authorities said she left her MacBook Air and wallet in the library by Flatbush Avenue at 2 pm. But when she returned, her computer and cash were nowhere to be found.

Subway slip-up

A nogoodnik picked up a woman’s wallet she left behind at a Flatbush Avenue subway stop on April 2.

Authorities said the lady placed her wallet next to her while she was sitting on a bench of the Flatbush-bound 2 train platform at the station near Fulton Street at 8:15 pm.

After she boarded the train, she was notified by her bank that her credit card had been used without her permission, according to a report.
