Bag swipe

A sticky-fingered suspect made off with a 34-year-old woman’s bag on July 5 as she partied at an Underhill Avenue nightspot.

The victim told police the unattended pocketbook disappeared from Woodwork between Pacific and Dean streets shortly before midnight and wasted no time using the ATM card found inside.

Laptop looting

A pair of thieves worked in tandem to swipe a laptop computer from a Flatbush Avenue Verizon store on July 3.

Police were told that the two suspects entered the store between Park and Prospect places together at 4:30 pm.

When one of the suspects distracted a worker with a battery of questions, his partner disconnected the computer from a display table.

Both fled together, cops were told.

Fierce foot

A burglar kicked in a St. Marks Avenue apartment door during a burglary over the Independence Day weekend, but took nothing.

The tenant in the unit which is between Flatbush and Carlton avenues, told police that she returned from a short trip at 2:30 pm on July 5 and found her front door opened and damaged.

The apartment was ransacked, but no valuables were missing, she told police.

Moped menace

A thief with a love for vintage mopeds swiped one off St. Johns Place on July 4, police said.

The owner of the yellow 1980 Yamaha Champ said that she parked her moped between Underhill and Washington avenues at 3 pm.

It was gone when she returned just before midnight.
