68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Malodorous heist

A criminal stole 10 bottles of Chanel perfume valued at $1,150 from an 86th Street department store on Sept. 7, police said.

The perp stole the merchandise from the store, located between Fourth and Fifth avenues, sometime before noon, and an employee called police soon afterward. Investigators are reviewing cameras in the area, according to the police report.

Bag, borrow or steal

An opportunistic thief stole hundreds of dollars worth of items — including a debit card and a pricey designer watch — from a woman’s unlocked 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee on 10th Avenue on Sept. 2.

After the victim parked her car at 84th Street just after 11:15 am, she left the doors unlocked while she brought her daughter inside their home. When she returned, she realized the crook had snatched her debit card, checkbook, wallet, and Michael Kors watch.

Unholier than thou

A good-for-nothing smashed the window of a woman’s 2007 Honda CR-V on 82nd Street and then stole a number of goods from inside on Sept. 7.

The woman parked her car between 13th and 14th avenues around noon and returned just after 4 pm, when she had picked her kids up from school, police said. She told cops the goniff smashed her window and took her handbag, wallet, driver’s license, checkbook, credit and debit cards, and rosary beads.
