Cool crime

A thief pushed through the air-conditioner unit of a Visitation Place apartment to steal $400 — but then denied he was a thief when confronted by the tenant’s uncle.

The action started at around 7:45 pm on Jan. 17 when the perp entered through the window, grabbed $400 off a dresser, and then hid in the closet when he got spooked.

The resident’s uncle opened the closet door and, predictably said, “Who are you and what are you doing here?”

The thief claimed to be a friend of the man’s nephew — but then he ran out with his cash.

The uncle wasn’t buying it, so he called cops. Officer Armando Medina collared the thief six days later.

Where: 77 Visitation Pl.
