Marine Park—Mill Basin—Flatlands—Bergen Beach

Gas pass

Someone smashed into a man’s car parked on Avenue I and E. 46th Street on Jan. 17 and stole his debit cards.

Police said a bandit shattered the driver-side window of the victim’s car sometime between midnight and 7:20 am, and took a wallet containing three debit cards.

Cops said that one of the debit cards was used to make a $75 transaction at 7:40 am at a Farragut Avenue gas station. Investigators are checking available surveillance to identify the suspect, according to the police report.

In plain sight

A marauder broke into a car parked in a Ralph Avenue parking lot on Jan. 17 and stole a designer purse.

The vehicle’s owner told police that she parked her car in the lot between Avenues K and L at 8 pm and went to a supermarket with a friend. When she returned she found the passenger-side window broken into and her friend’s designer bag missing, according to cops.

The victim’s gal pal told cops that she left her pocketbook in plain sight on the passenger-side floor, and canceled all debit cards that were inside the purse, according to the report.

Checks cashed

A fraudster intercepted an E. 55th Street man’s checks between Oct. 1 and Oct. 20.

The victim, who lives near Avenue O, told police that he put three checks in a United Parcel Service mailbox, two of which were modified and cashed for a total of $1,400, according to cops. The victim made the discovery on Jan. 8, and told cops the third check was not cashed, but is still missing.

Identity larceny

A sneak took a man’s wallet containing important documents from his motorcycle parked on E. 69th Street between Jan. 14 and Jan. 16.

The victim told police he parked his motorbike near Avenue X around 10 am on Jan. 14, and when he returned for it two days later around 3 pm, the bike was damaged and his wallet — containing identification cards and a birth certificate — was gone, according to police.

Quick grab

A nogoodnik swiped some gadgets from a car parked on Ralph Avenue on Jan 22.

The victim told police that he parked his car near Avenue K around 1 am to use a cash dispenser at a nearby bank and left his car running and unlocked. When he got back to his car 10 minutes later, his laptop, wallet, and cellphone were gone, according to police.
