In plain sight

Cops arrested a man for stealing sunglasses and electronics from a car in a Hendrickson Street driveway on June 8.

The owner told police that he saw someone breaking into both of his vehicles at his home near Avenue V around 10 pm, taking off with his shades and an unknown number of televisions.

Officers searched the area and arrested their suspect around 10:19 pm at his home just a few blocks away, according to the report.

Phantom break-in

Some nogoodnik broke into a car parked on E. 64th Street sometime overnight on June 10.

The victim told cops that she parked her vehicle near Strickland Avenue around 11:30 pm. The next day around 9:30 am, she discovered her designer handbag, two pairs of sunglasses, and a credit card missing from her vehicle, according to police.

Cops said that no damage was done to the car, indicating a break-in, according to the report.

Lost and stolen

A fraudster attempted to use a lost debit card at an Avenue U department store sometime between June 3 and 5.

The money-pocket’s owner told cops that she was shopping at the store near E. 55th Street on June 3 around 8 pm when she left her wallet on the store counter. The next day she realized that she left her wallet there and noticed that someone was blocked from attempting to make a purchase using one of her debit cards, according to the report.


Someone snatched a purse from a Utica Avenue laundromat on June 5.

The victim told police that she was at the location near Glenwood Road around 1:30 pm and left her bag at a table to refill her dryer. When she returned minutes later, her pocketbook was gone.

Her bag contained her credit card, identification card, and an insurance card, according to the report.

Inside job

Cops busted a pharmacist who they say falsified prescriptions at a Kings Highway pharmacy on June 8.

Police said the suspect altered the prescriptions at the drugstore near Glenwood Avenue in December to receive two shipments of Oxycodone, and only entered half of the shipments into the pharmacy’s system, according to the report.

Cops also said that four bottles of the drugs were not in the pharmacy’s system, which the suspect allegedly took to distribute, according to the report. Police arrested the man at his home, according to the report.
