Bank robbery on Montague St!

84th Precinct

Brooklyn Heights–DUMBO–Boerum Hill–Downtown

No dyes

A masked perp robbed the Sovereign Bank on Montague Street on Feb. 24 after passing a threatening note to the teller.

The mustachioed man, who concealed his identity under a ski cap, entered the bank, which is between Court and Clinton streets, at around 10:45 am and passed the teller a note reading, “No dye packs; no one has to get hurt.”

Given the threat, the teller passed the perp $3,500, and called the cops after he fled.

Pack snatch

A would-be photographer stole a backpack stuffed with fancy electronics in front of the DUMBO Starbucks on Feb. 27.

The victim told cops that he was enjoying a cup of coffee at the chain java joint on Front and Main streets at around 12:50 pm when a thug stole his black backpack, getting a wireless transmitter, a flash and battery packs valued at $4,750.


Two men snatched a woman’s Blackberry on Feb. 24 on State Street.

The women told cops that she was near Bond Street at 7:30 pm when two boys approached, snatched the smartphone from her hand and fled toward Jay Street.

Muscle heist

A thug stole a wallet from the locker room of a fancy Joralemon Street gym on Feb. 26.

The victim told cops that he left his wallet in an unlocked locker in the Equinox gym between Court and Clinton streets at around 7 pm.

When the athlete returned from his workout 10 minutes later (some athlete!), the wallet was gone — along with his credit cards, drivers license, insurance cards and $100.

Wheel bad

A perp smashed a window and stole stuff from a Honda on Plymouth Street on Feb 20.

The victim told cops that he parked his 2008 sedan between Jay and Bridge streets at around 5 pm and returned a half hour later to find his window broken and nearly $4,000 in computer accessories and designer clothing gone.
