68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Bad reception

A degenerate cab driver stole a cellphone from his customer after they got into a dispute on Shore Parkway on Aug. 29, police said.

After the pair fought over directions, the female rider asked the driver to pull over at Bay 8th Street around 3:30 pm, according to the report. When she exited the car, the perp followed her and caught up quickly enough to hit her BLU Vivo XL cellphone out of her hand before snatching it and driving off.

Hold the phone

A sleepy subway rider had a rude awakening after a miscreant stole her handbag, various identification documents, and about $300 while she was sleeping on the R train near the 77th Street station on Sept. 1.

After she visited a friend in Manhattan, the woman boarded a Bay Ridge-bound R train at Rector Street around 4 am. She soon fell asleep, and when she awoke just before her 77th Street stop, she realized her handbag was missing, along with her Social Security card, state ID, birth certificate, credit card, and $300 cash, according to the report.

Crown jewels

A crook burglarized a home on Ovington Avenue while the homeowner was at work on Sept. 1 and stole $500 worth of custom jewelry, according to police.

When the woman returned to her home, between 10th and 11th avenues, from work at around 2:20 pm, she saw that her front door was pried open and soon learned the good-for-nothing had taken hundreds worth of custom jewelry. Police are reviewing cameras in the area.
