Scaredy-cat burglar

A not-so-stealthy burglar broke into a Gerritsen Avenue home on Feb. 8 — but fled empty-handed after knocking over furniture, police said.

The lug entered the home near Avenue U through an unlocked back window at about 4:30 am, and knocked over a dresser, causing a loud bang. The oaf then fled back out the window on foot without taking anything, according to authorities.
