76th Precinct

Carroll Gardens-Cobble Hill–Red Hook

Not quite a light saber

A perp armed with a laser pointer stuck up two women as they walked on Verona Street on June 16.

The women told cops they were at the corner of Dwight Street at 2:10 am when the lowlife threatened to shoot them if they didn’t hand over their purses and the women, who say they didn’t see a gun, decided not to take any chances.

The robber made off with several credit cards, both women’s driver’s licenses, and more than $100 in cash.

Joy ride is over

Cops collared a 20-year-old who they say who they say was recklessly riding a stolen CitiBike on a Hicks Street sidewalk on June 15.

The officers spotted the perp between Mill Street and Centre Mall at 4:46 pm. It turned out the cruiser had been missing since June 8, when someone checked it out of a dock in Manhattan.

The cops who nabbed the young man say they also found a small amount of marijuana in his possession.

Disappearing act

Someone swiped a woman’s bike parked on Hoyt Street sometime between June 13 and 15.

The 29-year-old woman told cops she left her blue-and-yellow Shogun bicycle between Baltic and Wyckoff Streets at 10 pm on June 13, but when she returned at 1:40 pm on June 15, it had vanished.

The thief had cut the woman’s u-lock and sped off with her ride.

Tools beware

The great tool robberies continue! A thief — or thieves — hit a maintenance room in a Housing Authority building on Columbia Street sometime overnight on June 11.

The miscreant entered the storage room in the building between Centre Mall and Bush Street without force sometime between 5 pm on June 11 and 7 am the next day, scooting off with a handful of utility knives.

Cops say the misdeed is similar to a tool theft from a Red Hook West basement between June 6 and 9, but they stopped short of linking the two crimes.
