Cop caper

Even off-duty cops run into trouble at the notorious Atlantic Center Mall.

An officer shopping at the Burlington Coat Factory had her purse snatched after she absentmindedly left it on a clothing rack on Dec. 26.

Officer Denise Marshall told her fellow officers that she was shopping at the crime-ridden mall, which is near the corner of Atlantic and Flatbush avenues, at around 9 pm when someone swiped her purse, which contained NYPD IDs, credit cards, and $350.

The embarrassed cop then called in her own crime.

Where: 625 Atlantic Ave.
