Fort Greene–Clinton Hill
A thief drilled a hole through the passenger-side door of a car on Vanderbilt Avenue on Jan. 20 — and made off with a new computer.
A woman told police she was near Lafayette Avenue at 10:15 pm when she spotted a punk boring through a parked car’s door. After he gained access to the interior, he removed a bag containing a laptop from the vehicle and fled, according to a report.
A goon stole a guy’s necklace and phone as he was exiting the Fulton Street subway station on Jan. 17.
The victim told police he was coming up the stairs from the subway stop near Lafayette Street at 2:30 pm with a friend when a guy followed them onto the sidewalk.
Once the trio was above ground, the nogoodnik asked, “What do you have for me?” and grabbed one of the victims by his coat, forcing him to sit on a bench. The thief snatched his gold necklace off his neck and dug into his pocket, taking his phone. The crook tried to steal his boots, too, but got scared and fled, according to reports.
A weasel stole the safe from a Carlton Avenue diner overnight on Jan. 19.
The restaurateur said the bandit popped the lock on the haunt near Myrtle Avenue between midnight and 4 am. He then went down to the basement and lifted the safe, which was not bolted to the floor, cops said.
A sneak lifted a woman’s phone as she was boarding the Coney Island-bound Q train at the Atlantic Street station on Jan. 19.
The baffled victim told police she was stepping onto the subway at 6:27 pm when she felt a bump from behind. She continued on the train, not suspecting a thing, but when she arrived at the Prospect Park station, she noticed her phone — which contained her credit cards and debit cards in the case — had vanished from her jacket pocket.
