Burglars make off with safe filled with jewelry

68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Unsafe act

Two burglars made off with a lockbox from a 12th Avenue residence on April 15, police reported.

Surveillance tapes show two male prowlers breaking down the basement door of the home between 79th and 80th streets at 10 am, then grabbing a safe loaded with thousands of dollars in jewelry, a report says.

Tired out

A bandit jacked the tires and rims from a Honda Accord parked on 97th Street sometime overnight on April 17, according to cops.

The victim told police he left the vehicle near Marine Avenue at 9 pm, and returned at 8:40 the next morning to find it up on cinder blocks, police stated.

Like candy from a baby

A crook lifted a woman’s purse from atop her stroller inside Leif Ericson Park on April 19, authorities said.

The victim reported that she was sitting in the green space near the corner of 66th Street and Eighth Avenue with the perambulator at 6:40 pm when she realized her bag was gone and, with it, her credit cards and Samsung Notebook.

Key to the highway

Cops cuffed a man who they claim picked up a set of lost keys on Fort Hamilton Parkway and stole someone’s car on April 17.

The victim told police he dropped his keys between 90th and 91st streets at 8:45 am. When he realized they were missing moments later, they were gone, as was his car, law enforcement officials said.

Police say that a witness told them when they arrived on the scene that the defendant had grabbed the keys, jumped in the victim’s car, and sped off. Cops say they apprehended the suspect in the vehicle a few blocks away.

Gouge away

Authorities arrested a man who they say stabbed two of his peers on Fourth Avenue on April 15.

Police report watching the accused take a knife from his car parked between 100th and 101st streets at 3:05 am, then seeing the suspect stick the blade into two other men nearby. Cops say they slapped the cuffs on the man in custody moments later.
