Bicycle jacked

Police arrested a suspect who they say stole a bicycle from a food deliveryman on Second Place while he was on the job on Dec. 27.

The victim told police he was between Court and Clinton streets at 10:25 pm when the suspect, along with accomplices who were also apprehended, surrounded him and snatched the two-wheeler.

Cash swiped

A woman was arrested for stealing a wad of money from a relative’s Court Street home on Dec. 8, police said.

The victim told cops that prior to the robbery, she forbade the suspect from returning to her abode between Third Place and Fourth Place ever again.

At about 3:30 am the victim saw the suspect climb out of the kitchen window and onto the street. Shortly after, the victim noticed that a lump sum of cash was missing from her purse, which she had left in the dining room, according to cops.

The suspect faces charges of burglary, criminal trespass, petit larceny, and criminal possession of stolen property, according to documents from the District Attorney’s office.
