Carroll Gardens-Cobble Hill–Red Hook

Two-wheel terror

A bike-riding bandit nicked a woman’s necklace on Clinton Street on Sept. 25.

The woman was between Union and President streets in Carroll Gardens at 3:35 pm when the cycling ne’er-do-well ripped the $200 chain from around her neck and sped off toward Red Hook, police said.

Vanishing act

A Boerum Hill woman’s van disappeared sometime between Sept. 24 and 25.

The woman parked her brown Chrysler Voyager at the corner of Bond and Wykoff streets at 9 pm, but when she came back at 2 pm the next day, the van was gone, police said. There is no record of it being towed, officials said.

Rx for disaster

Two twerps tangled with a clerk as they tried to steal a garbage bag full of drugs from a Court Street pharmacy on Sept. 25.

The gonzo goons walked into the store between Amity and Pacific streets in Cobble Hill at 2:40 pm, and stuffed $1,300 in stuffy nose medicine and another $1,400 in stomach medicine into a trash bag, police said.

A clerk tried to stop them, and one punk pushed the employee to the ground, officials said. The pair beat it in a white Acura, but left the bag of goodies behind, a police report states.

Nail remover

A tool stole $2,040 in construction equipment from a Lorraine Street garage between Sept. 7 and Sept. 22.

The garage is between Hicks and Columbia streets in Red Hook, police said.

Luxury larceny

A burglar who broke into a Union Street home made off with brand-name booze, designer shoes, and some high-end computers on Sept. 22.

The lout smashed his way into the apartment between Henry and Clinton streets in Carroll Gardens while the resident was at work some time between 9 am and 5 pm, police said.

He took two MacBooks, an iPod, Prada and Louis Vuitton shoes, and a bottle of Grey Goose vodka, officials said.
