Fort Greene–Clinton Hill

Cook out

Some burglar stole cooking equipment from a Myrtle Avenue diner sometime between July 1 and July 5, police said.

The victim told cops she opened the restaurant’s doors near Adelphi Street on July 5 at about 7 am and walked down to the basement, where she noticed a meat slicer and induction burner was missing. The thief left the eatery’s door that leads to the alley open and cameras in the kitchen were turned upwards, according to authorities.

Train thief

A good-for-nothing swiped a teen’s wallet while on a train near Nevins Street on July 3, police said.

The 18-year-old told police he was on a Manhattan-bound 4 train near Flatbush Avenue and Fulton Street a little after noon when he felt some creep lift up his back pocket. The teen checked his pocket, but his wallet — with his social security card and school identification cards — was gone, officials said.

Bike bandit

A nogoodnik rode off with a woman’s bike she had left on Hanson Place on July 6, police said.

The 22-year-old woman said she locked up her Surly bike on a rack near Fort Greene Place at about noon, and when she returned an hour later, it was gone and her lock was on the ground, cops said.

Un-welcome home

Some criminal stole a wad of cash from a woman’s Clermont Avenue apartment while she was away between July 3 and July 8, police said.

The victim left her apartment near Myrtle Avenue on July 3, and when she returned five days later at about noon, saw some baddie had snatched $7,000 from a drawer by her bed, cops said. The victim’s daughter and boyfriend were staying in the apartment while she was away, according to authorities.
