Reefer madness

Cops busted an alleged pothead for smoking pot at a Warren Street housing complex on Oct. 16.

Patrolmen spotted the suspect puffing on a marijuana cigarette outside the building between Third and Fourth avenues at 11:16 am, before slapping him cuffs on him and conducting a “field test” that confirmed the suspect was smoking the whacky tabacky, cops said.

Four-wheel steal

A thief made off with two bicycles parked on Empire Boulevard on Oct. 14.

The victim told police that he left his bikes near Flatbush Avenue at 4 pm, and returned an hour and half later to find the blue Crossroad and silver Trek stolen.

Grand theft auto

A car thief took off in a man’s ’04 Ford Vangaurd from its Carrol Street spot sometime between Oct. 6 and 11.

The victim told police that he parked his car between Polhemus and Fiske places at 3 pm, and returned five days later to find his ride had vanished.

Cooling his heels

A 20-year-old man was arrested for lifting shoes from a Flatbush Avenue retailer on Oct. 14.

An employee told police that the suspect was seen browsing footwear in the store near Atlantic Avenue at 5:40 pm, before he was spotted shoving two pairs of pricy kicks into a bag and walking out the door.
