Gold rush

A thief stole more than $5,750 worth of jewelry and cash from a woman’s jewelry box, kitchen, and bedroom at her 79th Street home sometime between Oct. 6 and 7, police said.

The woman reported the theft from her home between Fourth and Fifth avenues after 5:30 pm on Oct. 7. The crook took three gold chains, three rings, a Michael Kors watch, a pair of diamond earrings, and cash, according to the police report.

Missing wheels

A punk stole a man’s 1989 Honda Civic from its Sixth Avenue parking spot sometime between Oct. 1 and 3.

The car owner reported the theft of the car, which was taken from its spot between Fifth and Sixth avenues, just after 11 pm on Oct. 4. When he returned to the spot, the car was gone, according to the cops’ report. The man said he only has one set of keys for the car, and investigators are reviewing surveillance footage from cameras in the area.

Grabbed bag

A crook stole a man’s book bag with more than $2,300 worth of items inside from a 2017 Lexus Sedan parked on Bay Ridge Parkway sometime between Oct. 3 and 4, police said.

The man said his brother parked the car at 11th Avenue at around 3 pm on Oct. 3, and that when he went to the car at around 6:30 am the next morning, his bag was gone — along with the $100 cash, Louis Vuitton wallet, Apple MacBook, and six credit cards that were inside. The man said the car key was inside the car and the doors were unlocked. Police are reviewing cameras in the area.
