84th Precinct Police Blotter – 3/27/13

Hey there, Perps and Skells! It’s HQ here, newly unemployed and free to get down to business with the blotter again! I know, it’s been a while …

Though I was gainfully employed for a year and a half, I did miss my reports on Planet Fitness and hot-off-the-2-train iPods. So needless to say I was thrilled to be let go from a steady paycheck and gain the opportunity to pay weekly visits to the 84th Precinct.

I got off to a bit of a rough start, though–getting an appointment with Crime Analysis was now like trying to score a table at Rao’s, and “Don’t you know who I am?” impressed no one. Still, after two days I decided to name-drop “Homer Fink” and doors were suddenly opened. Just like at Rao’s! But enough about Homer, on with the miscreants.

On March 19th at 5:30 p.m., a 20-year-old male tried to buy a ring from ID Jewelry on Fulton St. Unfortunately, the love-struck Romeo used a stolen credit card, and was arrested at the scene.

Also on March 19th at 4 p.m., a verbal dispute between two workers at the 388 Bridge St construction site in DoBro (vom) turned violent, with one hitting the other over the head with an unknown weapon. A 35-year-old male was arrested.

On March 22nd at 9:30, two men entered a Blimpie’s at the corner of Pearl and Willoughby–one watched the door while the other ran to the register, flashed a gun, and got the cashier to throw $1,000 into a plastic CVS bag. The two men are still at large.

Also on March 22nd, a 16-year-old male being arraigned at 120 Schermerhorn went berserk and smashed a computer screen, pieces of which went flying into a police officer’s eye. The juvenile was removed from court, while the officer was taken to LICH.

On March 24th around 1 a.m., a woman was mugged at Pacific and 4th; a 31-year-old man was caught red-handed with her bag.

And finally–no reports of any Planet Fitness shenanigans, but the YMCA on Atlantic was the scene of a locker room break-in–a man claimed he locked his locker, but when he returned from his workout, his wallet and cell phone were gone. It’s deja-vu all over again. And that’s this week’s blotter.

    I just saw a picture of Michael Bloomberg on the BHB, and I vomited. He should have to wear a bag over his head at all times.

    Heather, so glad to see you back. How do I get the police blotter from other precincts? I know Carroll Gardens and a lot of other blogs have them, but not all of Brooklyn, Thanks.

    Thanks! Glad to be back. How do you get the police blotter from other precincts? Get me a raise! But seriously folks, I think the Brooklyn Paper has them.

    If Downtown Brooklyn isn’t to be “DoBro”, let’s get brainstorming.

    1. Reverse it for “BrooDo”—rhymes with “judo”.

    2. “Ratnerville” (more or less)

    3. MetroTechEtCetera

    4. Brooklyn Heights East
