Rolling in stolen dough

Three gun-toting worms swiped $9,000 from a guy’s pant’s pocket on Shore Parkway on June 4, police said.

The victim was near Brown Street at 4:30 pm when the trio approached and one pulled out a black handgun, according to authorities. The goon then grabbed the wad of cash from the guy’s left pants pocket and all of the miscreants ran away, police said.

Sacrilegious sneak

Police cuffed a 28-year-old guy who they say broke into a synagogue on Ocean Parkway on June 3.

A witness saw the suspect in the maintenance closet at the synagogue near Avenue P with a handful of stolen property at 11:50 pm, according to authorities. The witness and suspect engaged in a struggle as the witness held the guy until police arrived.

The witness suffered injuries to his hands and legs in the struggle, police said.

Cleaned her out

A looter broke into a woman’s Avenue V house overnight on June 4, swiped her purse, and threw away some of her belongings, police said.

The woman told police she and her family went to bed in their home at E. 22nd Street at midnight, and when they woke up at 8 am, she noticed the front screen on a window was wide open and her Michael Kors purse was no longer on the coffee table.

Her purse had a Michael Kors wallet with a credit card in it, various makeup items, and a compact mirror inside, according to authorities.

The sneak made no charges to her credit card and dumped some other contents of her purse in the trash, police said.
