Cops get drug benefit

Memo to crooks: When you head to work for the night, leave your prescription bottle behind.

A thief learned that valuable lesson after a pill bottle with his name on it led to his arrest on Feb. 4.

The action actually started on Jan. 26, when a woman left her bag unattended at the bar at Ceol on Smith Street between Warren and Baltic streets at around 11:50 pm.

The perp swiped the bag, which had $40 and various cards, and fled — but ran straight into one of the bartenders, who was standing outside.

The two tussled, and the perp dropped his medication before fleeing.

But a week later, Det. Danny Bonilla caught the defendant, 45, on Hoyt Street.

Where: 195 Smith St.
