84th Precinct

Brooklyn Heights–DUMBO–Boerum Hill–Downtown

Close, but no ignition

A pair of baddies tried to ride off with a guy’s car parked on State Street on Dec. 17, police said.

A witness spotted the two punks hop in the 2017 Volk parked near Court Street at about 9:50 am and try to turn it on, officials said. But the jerks couldn’t start the engine and instead fled in a gray four-wheeler, but left a phone inside, according to authorities.

Dude, where’s my car?

Some weasel stole a woman’s car parked on Bergen Street on Dec. 18, police said.

The 61-year-old victim told police she parked her 2014 Honda Civic at 11 am and when she returned at 8:30 pm, it was gone, according to authorities.

Bank robbery

A scoundrel ran off with cash he demanded from a bank teller on Smith Street on Jan. 2, police said.

The teller told police the villain entered the financial institution between Court Street and Boerum Place at about 10:50 am and passed a note that said, “5,000 quickly.” The victim complied and gave the lout $1,540, who then fled out of the bank with the note, according to authorities.

Shopping free!

Four baddies swiped a handful of clothes from a Fulton Street store on Jan. 5, police said.

The quartet of punks took denim pants, a white T-shirt, and a black leather jacket from the boutique between Elm and Bond streets at about 7:40 pm, officials said. The store manager tried to stop the malefactors from fleeing with the clothes, but one of the curs pushed him and ran out, according to authorities.

Liquor looters

Some home invaders stole bottles of liquor from a guy’s Furman Street apartment sometime overnight on New Year’s Eve, police said.

The 56-year-old victim told police the sneaks crept in through a rooftop door sometime between Dec. 31 at 8 pm and 1 am on New Year’s Day and stole a Johnnie Walker Blue bottle, bourbon bottle, and Gruppa bottle, according to authorities.

Cleaned them out!

Cops cuffed a woman for swiping a bunch of cleaning products from a Fulton Street drugstore on both Jan. 6 and Jan. 7.

The 34-year-old suspect took five bottles of detergent from the store near Smith Street on Jan. 6 just after midnight, and then the next day at about 4:51 pm, took another three bottles of bleach, officials said.
