This stinks

A box cutter-wielding bozo swiped $248 worth of soap and body spray from Court Street store on Nov. 1.

A woman told police she saw the lout fill an orange bag with bottles of Dove and Axe products at 8:49 pm and asked him if he was going to pay for it. He said he was, but when he got to the cash register, he threatened an employee with the box cutter and left with the ill-gotten toiletries, according to authorities.


Some scoundrel stole a laptop, cash, and makeup from a woman’s car parked on Degraw Street some time overnight on Oct. 31, police said.

The victim told cops she left the items in a tote bag inside her 2015 Toyota Rav 4, which she parked between Clinton and Henry streets at 8:30 pm, and wasn’t sure if the doors were locked or not.

When she returned at 9:30 am on Nov. 1, the bag — plus the Apple MacBook air, a black purse, prada sunglasses, a MetroCard, three credit cards, $50 worth of makeup, and $75 cash inside — were gone, police said. There was no damage to the car, officials said.
