68th Precinct

Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

Bump and crime

A no-goodnik stole a man’s wallet — which held $100 in cash, five credit cards, and his ID — his from his back pocket on a southbound R train on Oct. 16.

The perp brushed up against the man and bumped him repeatedly on the crowded train between the 59th Street and Bay Ridge Avenue stops at some point between 4 and 5 pm. When the man got off the train at the 95th Street station, he realized his wallet was missing, but the crook had already fled.

Unknown caller

A pack of lying louts stole $3,150 from a 67th Street resident on Oct. 16 when they scammed him over the phone, demanding he relay his Social Security, credit card, and PIN numbers to them, which they then used to access his bank account.

The perps made the call to the home at Colonial Road at 2:30 pm, and the man promptly gave them the requested information. The crooks then racked up the thousands of dollars in charges in no time.

Creep takes Jeep

A punk stole a woman’s 1996 Jeep Cherokee from its Shore Road parking spot at some point between Oct. 14 and 17.

The thief crook sped away from the spot between 68th Street and Bay Ridge Avenue at some point between noon on Oct. 14 and 8:30 am on Oct. 17, when the owner of the vehicle returned to the spot to find the car missing.

Sticky fingers

A thief stole a woman’s debit card from her friend’s home on Bay Ridge Avenue on Oct. 15 and then used it at a nearby drugstore, racking up more than $60 in charges.

The woman was sleeping at her friend’s home between Third and Fourth avenues when someone in the house took the card between noon and 3 pm, then went to a nearby Eighth Avenue drugstore to go on the shopping spree.

Purloined plastic

A miscreant stole a man’s medical, hospital, debit, credit, and social security cards — along with his driver’s license — from his car parked on 73rd Street on Oct. 22.

The lout broke into the car between Fort Hamilton Parkway and Tenth Avenue at some point between midnight and 8 am, at which point he stole the pack of plastic, police said.
