Burglar takes designer bag, watches, and jewelry

Brooklyn Daily

68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Vuitton today, gone tomorrow

A fashion-forward trinket filcher burglarized a Fort Hamilton Parkway home on June 13.

The jewelry jacker entered the home between 86th and 88th streets sometime between 3 and 7 pm and took off with a Louis Vuitton handbag, three watches, and some other jewelry all estimated at $2,850, police say.

When the resident came home, she noticed her adornments were gone and a rear window was wide open, reports state.

Dyker desperados

A band of goons is suspected in connection with three separate street robberies in Dyker Heights on June 9. Here’s what went down:

• Four men tried to snatch a woman’s purse on at the corner of 71st Street and Eighth Avenue at 8:35 pm, but they only made off with the $2 she was holding in her hand, police say.

• Next, a trio stormed a woman at the corner of 73rd Street and Fort Hamilton Parkway, and this time, they succeeded, according to officials.

The victim told cops she was walking home at 8:50 pm when the group came up from behind and snatched her purse — which contained $300 and credit cards, police say. The woman was not injured, reports state.

• Just five minutes later, three brutes tried to pull a shirt over a man’s head and pick his pockets on Seventh Street between 10th and 11th avenues, according to law enforcement sources.

Police say the suspects in each incident fit the same description. Victims described the bandits as male Hispanics in their late teens or early 20s, police say. One is 6-feet and weighs about 160 pounds — the other three were described as standing 5-feet-8 and weighing between 140 and 190.

Purse purloined

A purse-snatcher took a woman’s tote in broad daylight on 95th Street on June 14.

The woman was walking home along the street between Third Avenue and Ridge Boulevard at 1:35 pm when a man ran up from behind and cribbed her clutch, police say. The bag contained $38 and credit cards, reports state.
