Today’s news:

Dough devil

Workers at the Brooklyn Bread Cafe, 436 Court Street, were a little light on dough last Saturday after a burglar snuck in and swiped the cash register.

Cops were told that employees went to open the business near 2nd Place at 6 a.m. on November 7 to find the French doors unlocked and opened.

The only thing missing was a $300 register, which contained $275 in receipts.

Thieves broke into an Entenmann’s truck making deliveries through Carroll Gardens last week, taking four delectable, if inexpensive, cakes.

The delivery man told police that he had parked his 1997 Chevy truck on Bond Street near Butler Steet at 12:15 p.m. on November 7 when someone smashed the passenger window.

The thief then opened the back, taking $20 worth of cakes.

The delivery man’s cell phone was also taken, officials said.

A 33-year-old woman had her wallet and credit cards swiped as she shopped in Trader Joe’s, 130 Court Street, last week.

The woman said that she was in the grocery store between noon and 1 p.m. on October 28 when someone slipped off with the pink wallet.

When she discovered her wallet was missing, the woman called to cancel her credit cards only to discover that someone had already tried to make a purchase on one of them.

Luckily, the charge was declined, cops were told.

A free-wheeling thief made off with a pricey two-wheeler left in the lobby of a Henry Street building last week.

The 31-year-old owner of the beige “Longhaul Trucker” said that he had left the bike in the lobby of the building between President and Union streets at 6:30 a.m. on October 31.

By 5:30 p.m. that evening he learned that someone had treated himself to the bike, officials said.

A thief made off with a big haul -- or should we say hauler -- last week.

A 42-year-old motorist told police that someone took his 2006 Dodge Ram worth $26,000 while it was parked on Hoyt Street near Warren Street at 3:45 a.m. on November 6.

The truck disappeared within four hours, officials said.

A computer thief took the path of least resistance -- a rooftop hatch -- during a burglary of a 4th Street warehouse last week.

Workers from H&H Laboratories said that someone lowered themselves into the building at 10:30 p.m. on November 5 and made off with several laptop computers and a large screen television.

The thief ultimately fled through the front entrance, but not before triggering the alarm, officials said.

A 35-year-old returned to his 2009 parked on Van Brunt Street near Coffey Street at 10 a.m. on November 3 to learnt that someone had motored off with two of his wheels.

Cops were told that the victim had left the car on Van Brunt Street at 6 p.m. the night before. In the hours that followed, someone removed the front and back tires on the driver’s side, officials said.

Police are looking for the thieves who targeted three Van Brunt Street addresses last week.

Workers at a shoe store on Van Brunt Street near King Street said that they were left sole-less on October 25 after someone broke their glass door and removed 18 pairs of Timberland boots, as well as a desk top computer.

About a day later, someone tried to break into the mail room of a Van Brunt Street building just down the block from the shoe store, although the thief was unable to gain entry.

Earlier in the week, someone swiped two bicycles from a Van Brunt Street apartment building near Dikeman Street. The victim said that he had left the $1200 two wheeler and its $100 sidekick in a common area of the building at 8 p.m. on October 23. When he went to retrieve them the next morning, they were gone.

Investigators could not find any signs that someone had broken into the apartment building, leading them to believe that the theft was committed by another tenant or an acquaintance of a tenant.

Cops are asking anyone with information regarding these two break-ins to come forward.

Calls can be made to the 76th Precinct at (718) 439-4211. All calls will be kept confidential.

Cops are scratching their heads over who would want to take a $6,000 lift machine from a Red Hook equipment rental company.

Police were told that the pricey piece of equipment was removed from a lot near the corner of Bay and Hicks street sometime before October 12 although the crime wasn’t reported until October 28.

Workers at Sunbelt Rental said that they had contacted the last person who had borrowed the lift machine, who said that they had brought it back on October 5.
