Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Cycle of pain

A sneak thief stole a man’s pricey motorcycle from its 79th Street parking spot on Oct. 4, according to police.

The crook made off with the 2012 Yamaha moto, which its owner had parked at Sixth Avenue around 3:30 am, at some point between 5 am and 10:30 am. Police are reviewing surveillance cameras in the area, they said.

Bad check

A lying nogoodnik stole a woman’s IRS refund check valued at just over $1,500 from the Fourth Avenue mailbox where she had dropped it on June 10, the woman reported to cops on Oct. 10.

The criminal stole the check from the corner of 72nd Street sometime after she dropped it there to send to her bank at around 4 pm in June. But by October, the woman’s bank informed her that they had never received the check, and that it had been cashed already.
