Construction crook

A thief robbed a construction site on 83rd Street on Jan. 20.

The victim told cops he left the job site between Colonial Road and Ridge Boulevard at 6 pm, and returned the next morning to find that the site’s front door was unlocked and more than $1,000 worth of power tools and construction equipment had been nabbed. The victim told police that multiple people had access to the key for the site.

Wallet diving

A goon pilfered a woman’s car on Fort Hamilton Parkway on Jan. 16.

The victim said she parked her car near 68th Street at around 11:30 pm and returned at 3:30 am to find her passenger-side window smashed and her wallet, which contained credit cards and a driver’s license, missing.

Register robbery

The owner said the thief forced his way through the front door of the business between 76th Street and Bay Ridge Parkway sometime after 11 pm, grabbing a cash register containing $280. The register itself was worth $500.
