Park Slope

Bike bandit

A thief rode off with a man’s bicycle he locked up on Park Place on June 8.

The victim told police he parked his Linus-brand cycle near Carlton Avenue at 1 pm, and returned about six hours later to find his ride stolen.

Back-seat robber

Some creep ransacked a car belonging to a 70-year-old woman on 14th Street on June 10.

A neighbor of the victim told police he spotted the suspect in the backseat of the woman’s car between Fourth and Fifth avenues at 9 am.

The victim later discovered the crook had nabbed $500, her BlackBerry phone, and a Samsung tablet, according to police.

The woman’s granddaughter may be partly to blame for the theft, as the old lady suspects the girl left her car unlocked, cops said.

Social injustice

A thief stole a woman’s bike while she labored at a Union Street food co-op on June 13.

The victim told police she left her bike chained outside the grocery store between Sixth and Seventh avenues at 9:50 am, and returned following her three-hour shift to find her two-wheeler gone.

Jail for dinner

Cops busted a woman for allegedly nabbing $36 worth of groceries from a Third Street supermarket on June 14.

The woman’s employer told police the suspect was on shift at the store near Third Avenue at 9 pm when she was spotted trying to walk off with ill-gotten peanut butter, corn bread, and sweet pepper, among other illicit grocery staples.

Going to pot

A man was arrested for allegedly smoking weed inside a car parked on Prospect Place on June 18.

The arresting officer reported spotting the suspect puffing away in his car between Fifth and Sixth avenues at 6:43 pm.

Upon searching the suspect, the officer discovered a small Ziploc bag containing more pot, according to police.
