Dirty laundry

Cops cuffed a guy who they say tried to break into a Vanderbilt Avenue laundromat on Dec. 1.

A witness saw 19-year-old suspect standing atop a car, attempting to break into the clothes-washing business near Prospect Place around 1:20 am, police said.

Bike swipe

A nogoodnik stole a man’s bike on Eastern Parkway sometime between Dec. 3 and Dec. 4.

The victim told cops he locked up his ride near Washington Avenue around 9 pm on Dec. 3 and went to attend a museum show, but when he went back for his bike around 1 pm the next day, it was gone.

Not so fast

Cops cuffed a teen who they say jumped a turnstile while carrying drugs at a Flatbush Avenue train station on Dec. 3.

The 18-year-old allegedly tried to skip paying his fare at the platform near Atlantic Avenue around 8:22 am, police said. When officers caught up to the kid, they say they found drugs on him, according to the police report.

Package prowler

A bandit raided a delivery box outside a woman’s Garfield Place home on Dec. 3.

The woman told authorities she was away visiting family and returned to find naught but an empty box in front of her home near Eighth Avenue.
