It’s a stretch

A cop nabbed a would be burglar who claimed he broke into a Court Street yoga spa on Feb. 7 because he needed money to support his baby.

Police say that the 21-year-old crook entered the spa, which is near Sackett Street, between 5 and 7:50 pm, when Officer Joseph King arrived and chased the man from the club, which had been the scene of prior break-ins.

He caught up with him five blocks away at Smith and Warren streets. Despite the perp’s plea about the hungry baby at home, King put on the cuffs.

Where: 320 Court St.
