68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Gone in a flash

A crook took $1,550 in cameras from a Bay Ridge man’s 67th Street apartment on July 2, cops say.

The victim reported that he left the window of his apartment between Fourth and Fifth avenues open before taking off for work at 7 am.

When he came home at 4:30 pm, he saw someone had opened his window and left with his pricey photo gear.

Lifted screen

A burglar helped himself to an $800 TV from a 64th Street apartment while the tenant was out on the Fourth of July.

The victim said he left the windows open at his home between Third and Fourth avenues before leaving at 2 pm, and then came back at 2 am to see a thief had pushed up one of the screens and made off with his idiot box.

Mac daddy

A bandit yoinked a $2,000 Macbook from a Seventh Avenue house on July 7.

The victim told cops that he left his pad between 83rd and 84th streets at 2:50 pm, and came back at 3:13 pm only to find that a burglar had busted open his side door and taken his laptop.

Cops are looking at a neighbor’s security tapes to find the thief.

Car crash

A jerk stole a Bay Ridge man’s briefcase — containing his wallet and credit cards — from his car parked on 94th Street on July 7.

The man said he left his car parked — and unlocked — near a store between Third Avenue and Ridge Boulevard at 4:30 pm.

He said he ran inside for 15 minutes, but when he came out, the precious valise was gone.
