Not cucumber cool!

Two villains threatened to stab a teen and stole his electronic cigarette fluid on E. 15th Street on Nov. 24, police said.

The 18-year-old victim met up with the pair of swindlers near Avenue S at about 11:45 pm and planned to sell them the juul cool cucumber pods for $570, but the two tricksters both took out knives and told the teen to hand over the fluid or they would stab him, according to authorities. The snakes fled with his e-cigarette fluid, official said.

Backdoor bandit

Some punks stole a wad of cash from a Kings Highway store sometime between Nov. 24 and Nov. 26, police said. The nogoodniks climbed a rear metal gate, causing damage to it, near E. Ninth Street and pried open the back door, officials said. The louts grabbed $430 from the cash register and another $120 from an envelope on a shelf, according to authorities.

Sacrilegious sneak

A marauder swiped cash from an Avenue U synagogue on Nov. 20, police said. The pilferer walked into the shul near E. 24th Street through a back door left accidentally unlocked and took a donation box off the wall along and tipped over two other donation boxes at about 5 am, officials said. The thief took about $100 in cash, according to authorities.

Jewel thief

A prowler broke into a guy’s West Street house and swiped a bunch of jewelry on Nov. 19, police said. The 61-year-old told police the punk broke into his house near Avenue Y at about 1 pm and took his silver watch, gold ring, diamond ring, pearl necklace, and cash worth a total of $5,400, according to authorities.

Played the tool

A raider grabbed a bunch of tools from a guy’s work van parked on Melba Court sometime overnight on Nov. 20, police said. The punks broke into the van’s back door that was parked near Madoc Avenue and ran off with a demo saw, generator, laser level, tool bags, and hammers worth $5,560, according to authorities.
