Clue left behind

Some knaves broke into a guy’s Brown Street house and stole a laptop, camera, and watches on Oct. 26, police said.

The 27-year-old told police the weasels forced open the rear window and broke into his home near Avenue Z while he was out sometime between 8 am and 9 pm, and fled with a laptop, Sony digital camera, Dell laptop, a leather jacket, and watches, worth a total of $2,120, according to authorities. The punk also left behind his jacket and fled out the back door, officials said.

Huckster handyman

A fraudster swiped a woman’s cash and phone from her Avenue V apartment after pretending to be a handyman on Oct. 28, police said.

The 47-year-old woman told police she had left her apartment near E. 14th Street to do laundry, leaving the door unlocked but closed, at around noon, and when she returned about 10 minutes later, saw a stranger inside. When she confronted the rascal, the hoaxer said “I am here to fix something for the super,” but then ran out of the apartment with her iPhone and cash worth a total of $1,000, according to authorities.

Backdoor bandit

A lawbreaker snuck into a woman’s house on Bedford Avenue and swiped her cash on Oct. 27, police said.

The woman told police the scoundrel broke in through an unlocked back door near Avenue Y at about 5 am, awakening her. But when the woman confronted the snake, he socked her in the face, scratching her, according to authorities. The malefactor swiped $100 in cash, officials said.

Close, but no cigar

A good-for-nothing tried to break into a guy’s house on Bedford Avenue on Oct. 27, police said.

The guy told police he spotted the unknown female on his video surveillance screen trying to get into his house near Avenue Y at about 4 am, but she couldn’t get in, according to authorities.

Ransacking rogue

Some lout broke into a woman’s house on Avenue W and ransacked all the rooms on Oct. 26, police said.

The woman told police everyone left the house near E. 28th Street at about 5:30 pm, and when her brother returned home at about 10 pm, he noticed all his furniture in his room had been moved. Then the 33-year-old woman got back about five minutes later and she realized the good-for-nothing had ransacked all of the bedroom, but didn’t take anything, according to authorities.
