Theft arrest

Cops busted a woman for stealing clothing from an Avenue U department store on March 14.

The woman entered the store near Flatbush Avenue around 8:04 pm and lifted about five pieces of men’s clothing and placed them in her bag without paying, according to police. Cops said caught up with her near the store 30 minutes later and arrested her.

Fraudulent transaction

Some fraudster scammed an E. 54th Street woman’s bank account on Feb. 7.

The woman, who lives near Avenue K, told police that she called her bank around 6:30 pm on March 16 to check her account balance, and noticed suspicious activity. Cops said some trickster made transactions totalling $800 on her debit and credit cards, according to the report.

False identity

A pilferer used a Pearson Street man’s identification card to open a cellphone account on March 16.

The man told police that someone used his card to open the account in his name, and he received two smartphones at his home near Avenue U, according to the report. The cheat charged a total of $1,500 to the account, according to police.

Charged from afar

Someone used an Arkansas Drive woman’s credit card to make purchases in Queens on March 9 and March 10.

The victim, who lives near Basset Avenue, told authorities that on March 19 she discovered that her credit card was used at wholesale store in Queens. She told police that she has never been to the store, and said the suspect made charges totalling $194 to her account, according to the report.
