Mission improbable

This wasn’t a break-in. This was a well thought-out operation.

Cops are looking for the daredevil who repelled down the side of a 101st Street building on April 9 so he could break into a court officer’s apartment, where two guns, two knives and $80,000 were swiped.

There’s no fire escape on the building, so whoever broke into the home between Fourth Avenue and Fort Hamilton Parkway lowered himself down to the kitchen window — commando-style. The thief’s sneaker prints were found on the outside windowsill, which was forced open.

The 59-year-old court officer said that he returned home early that morning to find that the only thing missing was a safe, which contained a .38-caliber pistol, a Ruger SP101, two hunting knives, $80,000 and a watch.

Where: 425 101st Street
