The blotter had been on assignment at South of the Border cracking down on illegal fireworks, only to learn fireworks are legal there. Oops. At any rate, today we bring you a brief rundown on neighborhood nefariousness, with the blotter returning in full force next week. Until then..
—A snazzy suit left in a Planet Fitness locker was swiped by a gym thief looking for better threads.
—A Montague St. super is in the hot seat after being accused of stealing jewelry and $300 from a tenant.
—A thief tried to make his way into an apartment on Willow and Pineapple on Friday; when he was surprised by the tenant he said, “I’m an air conditioner inspector, and this air conditioner is unsafe.” Sullying the name of air conditioner inspectors everywhere.
—A Swedish tourist was pickpocketed while on a southbound 2 train at Borough Hall.
—Finally, three thugs threatened a man on Pacific St. and made him give up his iPhone, but allowed him to keep his SIM card. Even they know how tough it is to get back your contacts. And that’s this week’s blotter.
