68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Big break

A lowlife plundered thousands in cash, jewelry, and gold coins from a 77th Street home on March 11, according to cops.

The victim reported that she left her pad between 10th and 11th avenues at 12:42 pm, and while she was gone, her son stopped by at 2:10 pm to find that a villain had looted the house of $3,600 in cash, plus a pricey watch, a gold coin dating to 1927, and a diamond wedding ring.

Jacket jacking

A thief swiped a wallet holding $100 in cash from a woman’s coat pocket inside an 89th Street building on March 11, authorities allege.

The victim said she hung her jacket on a peg outside of an office in the edifice between Fourth and Fifth avenues at 1:30 pm and went into a meeting. When she put the coat back on at 8:15 pm, she realized her billfold was missing.


A burglar lifted two video game consoles, a drill, and $2,000 cash from a Fifth Avenue electronics store on March 16, police say.

An employee reported that the shop shut for the night at 2 am, and when he re-opened it at 2:30 pm the next afternoon, he found the register smashed and currency missing from inside, and an X-Box 360, a Playstation, and a screwgun gone from the shelves.
