Police blotter

Police are reportedly close to apprehending the man who held up a local Sunoco station at gunpoint last week and then made a bonehead mistake.

A worker was manning the 92nd Street station near Fort Hamilton Parkway at 3 a.m. on August 14 when the 34-year-old thief came in pretending to buy anti freeze.

But when he came to the counter, he didn’t have any anti-freeze in his hand. Instead, he had a gun, officials said.

Police said that the suspect robbed the store of $1100 in receipts and $150 in cigarettes before fleeing.

But sources said that the man was in such a hurry that he left his driver’s license behind.

Armed with an ID, cops were searching for the gunman as this paper went to press.
