Bay Ridge—Dyker Heights

What a spectacle

Cops arrested a suspect who they say stole a woman’s wallet inside a Third Avenue eyeglass retailer back on Oct. 2.

The victim told police that she works inside the spectacles shop between Bay Ridge Parkway and 76th Street, where she left her wallet at 1:45 pm that day.

When she returned later, she claims her wallet and the $3,500 it contained had been taken.

Police arrested the suspect after reviewing surveillance footage at the establishment, which they say shows a thief strolling into the victim’s office and nabbing her cash.

Sneaker thief

Police arrested a suspect for allegedly breaking into a man’s 66th Street home and stealing the victim’s fancy sneakers on Dec. 20.

The victim told police that he has security cameras installed on the front facade of his home between 11th and 12th avenues, which recorded an individual prying open his front door at 2:50 pm and disappearing into the house for a short time, before reappearing with a new pair of sneakers — the victim’s.

Police officers reviewed the surveillance footage and took a man into custody.
