84th Precinct Police Blotter – 2/15/15


Hello, lovebirds! Hope all you crazy kids had a great Valentine’s Day. And what can keep you more in the mood than another installment of the Brooklyn Heights Blog police blotter? Read it alone, or as a couple! (Or more, we don’t judge.)

Our old pal Planet Fitness finally returned, thanks to a locker break-in around 5 p.m. on January 19th. A 29-year-old man reported that he locked his locker, but when he returned, the lock was broken and wallet gone.

The next day, Nordstrom called a 39-year-old man to confirm that he’d applied for a credit card. He hadn’t. He also later discovered that five other companies had issued credit cards to an identity thief who was using the victim’s name and SSN#.

Two weeks later at Child Support Services, a woman reported that her child’s father stole her phone and the child. Among his distinguishing marks was a tattoo that read, “Bad Man.” He was later arrested.

That same day, a court-appointed guardian to an 87-year-old man shushed him out of his apartment, telling him that it needed cleaning. It was cleaned alright, of $1,550.

Two days later, $12K was stolen during a robbery at the ironically named Good Luck Newsstand.

An iPhone 6 was snatched out of the hand of a 30-year-old woman walking on Smith Street last Friday night.

At Dallas BBQ on the night of February 7th, two women sat at a table occupied by a 23-year-old and proceeded to steal her handbag. The woman gave chase and was punched in the face. The perps are still at large.

Finally, on the afternoon of Febraury 6th, a 30-year-old woman let a cleaning woman into her apartment. A few hours later after the woman left, the victim discovered she’d also taken two Rolex 2 Stone watches worth $6,800 total. And that’s this week’s blotter.
