84th Precinct Police Blotter – 1/18/11

bugleblotter-300x1711 Brooklyn Heights was a sight to behold today, what with children in snowsuits splayed across the sidewalk and commuters making like Balanchine over wet curbs. This reporter not only hit every red light when crossing, but didn’t miss a single dirt river. (In sneakers, yay!) I was never so happy to see Metro Tech in my life.

My journey then took me to that cozy part of Gold Street known as the 84th Precinct. Upstairs in Crime Analysis, I was shocked to discover that after all that schlepping, there were only three cases on file – and for the record, none involve iPod thefts on the F train or locker room shenanigans at Planet Fitness. Behold:

At 5:30 p.m. Monday, a woman was bumped on the sidewalk in front of 115 Court Street, and soon discovered her wallet and $400 missing.

Several hours earlier at 81 Washington St., the management who opened up Pomme saw that the register was gone along with $100.

Finally, the register tray at the Henry St. Tazza was stolen in the wee hours of Sunday night. The take? $15. And that’s this week’s blotter. Now if you don’t mind, I’m off to be treated for the consumption.

    That is a good one. I love that scene. Kirk Douglas is fantastic.

    Heather, you are so observant. Is it any wonder why you are responsible for the police blotter.

    Thank goodness I didn’t say something mean spirited. How embarrassing would that be?

    I love the movie “Death in Venice” with Dirk Bogarde. I also, to my amazement, had to read both books mentioned for a German literature course I took. I felt an obligation based on my German heritage. The other 2 authors required readings were many books by Hermann Hesse and Heinrich Boll.

    My paper for the course was comparing Hesse’s works with psychologist Carl Jung’s archetypes.

    Probably a little more than you wanted to know. Long live German literature and ithaca NY.

    This might be cheating, but here’s what I found.

    “Oh, life is a glorious cycle of song,
    A medley of extemporanea;
    And love is a thing that can never go wrong;
    And I am Marie of Romania.”
