Two 22-year-old women were arrested for stealing clothes from an Avenue U retailer on Dec. 3.

An employee told police that she was observing surveillance cameras inside the store near Flatbush Avenue at 5:30 pm when she noticed one of the suspects sitting in a chair next to a display table with two bags between her legs.

The other suspect allegedly dropped off clothing onto the display, which the suspect then nonchalantly placed into the bags by her legs, police report.

Hefty haul

Police arrested a 29-year-old man who they say attempted to steal a cashbox from an Avenue N store on Dec. 1.

The victim told police that she was between E. 59th Street and Ralph Avenue at 9:40 pm when he noticed the suspect grab the cashbox, which contained $3,000, and attempt to flee with his ill-begotten goods.

Cleaning crazy

Police arrested two 16-year-olds who they say robbed three teens on Ralph Avenue on Nov. 29 — taking two iPod Touches and a pair of headphones.

“Run your pockets, or I will crack you,” one of the suspects allegedly barked, before grabbing the victims’ property and fleeing.
