Piece of the pie

A thief wormed his way into the storage room of a Dean Street apartment building on Sept. 4, where he stole a bike piece by piece.

The victim told police that he left his bike within a storage room in the rental complex between Carlton and Vanderbilt avenues at 8 pm, and returned the next day to find everything but the front wheel was missing.

Parcel perp

A 41-year-old man was arrested for allegedly stealing packages off the steps of a man’s Lincoln Place home on Aug. 14 and Sept. 3.

The victim told police that, on both occasions, he and his family had been away from their home between Sixth and Seventh avenues, only to return and find he was missing packages listed as delivered.

It was only after the victim checked his surveillance feed that he spotted the suspect nabbing his parcels, cops said.

No class

A berserk vandal damaged a window at a Second Avenue plumbing supply store on Sept. 7.

The victim told police that he was inside the store between 13th and 14th avenues at 10:25 am, arguing with an irate employee over a matter of pay.

The dispute climaxed when the worker lost his cool and damaged a window, cops reported.

Meat miser

Police cuffed a 36-year-old man for nabbing organic meat from an Atlantic Avenue grocery store on Sept. 8.

A rep for the market between Fort Greene Place and S. Portland Avenue told police that the suspect was spotted inside the store at 6:10 am, slipping meat into his backpack and waltzing past the register.

Clothing crook

A 24-year-old man was arrested for lifting shirts and pants from a Flatbush Avenue clothing boutique on Sept. 9.

A rep for the retailer told police that the suspect was spotted inside the store between Hanson Place and Atlantic Avenue at 3:20 pm, attempting to sneak out with the apparel.

Bad employee

A dispute between two co-workers turned ugly when one sucker-punched the other on Atlantic Avenue on Sept. 9.

The victim told police he was near Flatbush Avenue at 2:15 pm, engaged in a shouting match with the other man. After a few nasty words were exchanged, the brute let the victim have it and socked him once in the face, police said.

Crack is whack

Cops busted an alleged crack head after he was spotted inside Thomas Greene Playground after dusk on Sept. 9 with a crack pipe.

The arresting officer reported spotting the suspect inside the park at Third Avenue and DeGraw Street at 3:20 am, and, upon further investigation, discovered he was in possession of a crack pipe.

The suspect allegedly attempted to destroy the apparatus after he’d been found out, but it was too late, and the officer slapped irons on him, cops said.
