68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights


A burglar ransacked a woman’s 77th Street apartment and made off with a safe full of jewelry on Oct. 28.

The woman came home to her flat between Sixth and Seventh avenues at 9:30 am and discovered that someone had turned the place upsidedown and made off with a safe from a hallway that contained $27,000 worth of jewels, including a Cartier watch, diamond earrings, and sapphire earrings, police said.

The jewel thief entered the apartment by forcing open the back kitchen door, and cops conducted a canvas but did not find the burglar, officials said.

Beat up car

A brute busted into a man’s car on Narrows Avenue on Oct. 28.

The victim told police he parked his black Cadillac Escalade between 81st and 82nd streets at 7:30 pm and left it there overnight. But when he returned in the morning, he noticed the rear passenger window was shattered, the dashboard and steering wheel were smashed, and the navigation system and radio were gone, said officials.

Car heist

A thief broke into a car on 85th Street and made off with designer sunglasses and checks on Oct. 24.

The owner told police that he parked overnight in front of his home between 11th and 12th avenues. But when he came back the next afternoon, the driver’s side door was open, the glove compartment was broken, and three pairs of Ferragamo sunglasses and two payroll checks totalling $1,800 were gone, said police.

Reasonable discourse

MJ from Bay Ridge says:
according to NYPD compstat 2.0
the 68 Pct recorded 7 crime complaints for the week, 4 in Bay Ridge, 3 in Dyker Heights. For Bay Ridge, only 1 occurred at night-time. I guess the 68 Pct has stepped up night-time patrol in Bay Ridge after overwhelmingly community concern. The average crime complaints for a weekly period is typically around 16.
