84th Precinct

Brooklyn Heights–DUMBO–Boerum Hill–Downtown

Here today, gone tomorrow

A thief stole a woman’s car parked near Willoughby Street sometime overnight on July 7, police said.

The 30-year-old woman told cops she had parked her four-wheeler near Duffield Street at about 11:30 pm and when she went to pick it up the next day at 9 am, it was gone, according to authorities.

Not caught on camera

Some crook hopped into a guy’s truck on Schermerhorn Street on July 5 and stole his company equipment, police said.

The victim was making a delivery near Hoyt Street at about 2:15 pm and left the truck unlocked and its windows down when a malefactor climbed in and stole his bag and handheld camera device, officials said. The baddie dropped the bag near State Street, but got away with the camera, according to authorities.

Grab and go

A pilferer swiped a woman’s wallet from her bag inside a Hoyt Street eatery on June 30, police said.

The 23-year-old victim told cops on July 2 that she was eating dinner inside the restaurant near Atlantic Avenue at about 9 pm when she put her purse on a chair and someone stuck their hand in and swiped her wallet — with her Chinese credit and debit cards, cash from Hong Kong, and a pack of birth control pills inside it, according to authorities.

Bye, bye, bicyles

A crook stole two bikes parked on Fulton Street on July 3, police said.

The victim said he locked up the pair of leader single speed giant women’s bikes near Bond Street at about 1:30 pm and when he returned at 5 pm, they were both gone, cops said.

Bagels and phones on the go

A baddie swiped a teen’s phone from his truck on Willoughby Street on July 7, police said.

The 19-year-old told cops he was delivering bagels to a deli near Duffield Street when he parked his truck out front at about 10:30 pm, and when he hopped back in a few minutes later, noticed someone had grabbed his iPhone from his bag, according to authorities.
