Box con

A crafty thief duped a dim-witted sucker into buying a box containing a “laptop computer” for $250 on March 22.

The mark told cops that she was in a Flatbush Avenue building between Dean and Bergen streets when the con man approached at around 2 pm. The perp offered to sell her the computer at a bargain price.

But as the lady began to examine the contents of the box containing the too good to be true computer, the thief snatched the $250 from her hand and took off.

Where: 202 Flatbush Ave.
