68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

How convenient

A cat burglar hit a Third Avenue convenience store in the early morning hours of Dec. 31, according to police.

Surveillance footage shows him cutting his way into the store near 96th Street around 4 am and breaking open “numerous” cash registers, the store owners told police.

The burglar tripped an alarm in the process. The owners got a call from their alarm company but told police they wrote it off as a false alarm, and the burglar got away through the roof with $15,000 in cash.

Unlocked and unloaded

An intruder raided a woman’s 68th Street apartment for cash and valuables on Dec. 27, police said.

The woman told cops she left her apartment between Bravo Boulevard and Eighth Street around 1:30 pm and returned at 3 pm to find her door unlocked and her apartment ransacked.

The thief stole $6,000 in cash, a Louis Vitton handbag, and a gold necklace, police reported. The woman is not sure if she left the door unlocked, but told police the building’s front door was left open for workers doing construction there.

Bad case of the Mondays

A thief left a man’s car sitting on cinderblocks outside his Shore Road home on Dec. 28, according to police.

The man said he parked his Honda right outside his apartment between 71st and 72nd streets around 11 pm and came back the next morning to find he was missing both his rims and tires.
