Card shark

Some crook looted an unlocked car parked on E. 64th Street on Aug. 6, stealing a wallet.

The victim told police he left his car near Strickland Avenue at 11:30 p.m., and returned the following morning to find someone had let themselves in and nabbed his credit cards.

The burglar made several unsuccessful attempts to purchase goods with the victim’s cards, before ultimately scoring paydirt at one retailer, where he was able to secure a $500 purchase, cops said.

The victim admitted to investigators that he forgot to lock his car, according to police.
