Bar fiend at Washington Commons

77th Precinct

Prospect Heights

Bag snag

A thief grabbed a bag from a Washington Commons patron on Dec. 18 — then used his victim’s credit card to run a tab!

The victim was celebrating inside the watering hole between Park and Sterling places when someone unhooked the bag from the back of her chair.

The woman cancelled her credit cards after discovering the theft, but was told that someone had just used one of them at the bar.

Rolling off

A crook gershed a bike from an Underhill Avenue apartment building on Dec. 16.

The victim left the two-wheeler unattended in a hallway between Sterling and St. Johns places when it was stolen sometime after 8 am.

Stunning observation

A wayward motorist was arrested at the corner of Classon and Atlantic avenues on Dec. 18 after cops found two stun guns from his car.

The 26-year-old was pulled over at 8:27 pm for failing to signal while changing lanes. The stun guns were an added bonus, police said.
