Had gun, got none

A lout threatened to shoot an Avenue U food chain cashier on Sept. 14, police said.

The cashier told police the goon dressed in all black entered the Dunkin Donuts near Bedford Avenue at about 6:20 am and said “Take all the money out of the register.” The criminal then shifted his jacket to show off a black firearm and said “I’m serious, I will shoot you,” according to authorities. The cashier told the cur she did not have a key and could only open it if the weasel bought something, but the snake fled, officials said.

Bye, phones

Some nogoodnik stole a guy’s electronics and shoes from his home on W. Seventh Street sometime between Sept. 10 and Sept. 12, police said.
