Toy story

Police cuffed a 32-year-old woman for allegedly nabbing toys from a Flatbush Avenue big-box retailer since Nov. 3.

Security spotted the suspect, an employee at the store near Atlantic Avenue, giving out illicit discounts and merchandise to an unknown shopper up until Nov. 26, when her scheme was discovered and the woman was compelled to sign an “admission statement” copping to the crime, according to police.

Paint rob

A rascal keyed a man’s car on Ninth Street on Nov. 30.

The victim told police the vandal ruined the paint job on his 2017 Infiniti he parked between Eighth Avenue and Prospect Park West at noon.

Cash grab

Cops arrested a 23-year old man for allegedly stealing a woman’s wallet inside an Atlantic Avenue electronics store on Dec. 7.

The victim told police she was inside the store near Flatbush Avenue at 8 pm, when she got an alert from her bank that her card was being used to make illicit purchases at a Fulton Street deli, and she realized her wallet had been stolen.

The woman called police and a store owner at the bodega was able to point out the suspect, who was later found in possession of crack cocaine, cops said.
