Unsmooth operator

A clumsy bandit tried to steal some goods from a car parked on Eighth Street, but the owner busted him on Jan 3.

The 43-year-old victim told cops he left his black Ford van near Sixth Avenue to get some grub at 3 pm. He returned about 40 minutes later to find a ponytailed thug with a skull tattoo rummaging through his glove compartment.

Cops later arrested the 36-year-old wannabe burglar — still carrying break-in tools.

Where: Eighth Street and Sixth Avenue
